- Meanings and history of the name Artemis
In Greek mythology Artemis is the daughter of Zeus and Leto and twin sister of Apollo. She is the goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she is a Greek moon goddess, sometimes depicted with a crescent moon above her head.
She had a group of devoted female followers called the Hunters of Artemis. Many of these were mortal women, but there were also nymphs and other mythological creatures. Like their mistress, the hunters swore to remain virgins, and were punished severely if they broke their vow.
