Removed: The root of the name is zeugnymi, greek for mating, as Zeus symbolizes the universal process of joining and disjoining. I checked Liddell and Scott, who give nothing but Sanskrit words for 'day' as the root for Zeus, not zeug-. Nor does their entry for 'zeugnymi' suggest any connection to Zeus. All of the above may well be true, but I'd like to have a source. --MichaelTinkler

Good point. This is the explanation I know but I'll have it checked in my books. I'll check it ASAP. BTW, I hope my english is good enough. --Jtheo (Greece).
