Greek mythology is popular. But how popular? And who is more popular than whom?
Breakfast with Pandora is here to tell you.
While working on my project on the Myers-Briggs personality system and Greek divinities, I googled Poseidon and noticed he had 33.6 million hits. I thought, well, that has to be among the most. Only Zeus would have more. Actually, not.
Herewith find a list of the 15 "official" Olympian divinities and their Google hits as of today. The results may surprise you.
I searched for the name alone. The numbers are in millions of hits.
I thought for sure Zeus would be #1, but I didn't take into account that Apollo and Hermes are very recognizable brand names now.
If you put "greek god" or "greek goddess" after the names, the hits go down considerably (again listed in millions of hits):
And, as I thought, the more traditional names go to the top, with Zeus comfortably at #1.
