In Greek mythology, Eros (UK: s/, US: s/;[2] Greek: Ἔρως, "Desire") is the Greek god of love. His Roman counterpart was Cupid[3] ("desire"). Normally, he is described as one of the children of Aphrodite and Ares, and with most of his siblings, was a part of group, consisting of winged love gods. However, sometimes he is also described as one of the primordial gods, but then, he is most often identified with Phanes.

Etymology

The Greek ἔρως, meaning "desire," comes from ἔραμαι "to desire, love", of uncertain etymology. R. S. P. Beekes has suggested a Pre-Greek origin.[4]
