Prometheus is a masculine name of Greek origin. Perhaps ironically, this name means "forethought." The story of Prometheus in Greek mythology is one mortals have told for centuries. This Titan god of fire believed in allowing mere mortals to evolve, and he gave them fire against the gods' wishes. In doing so, he enabled their abilities to form technology and cultivate civilization. Prometheus was, of course, brutally punished for his charitable and vital deed, leading some to question whether his forethought was in tact after all.
