Etymology[edit]

Possibly from τίτο (títo, sun, day), which is an Anatolian loan-word, or from τιταίνω (titaínō, to stretch, to extend), from τείνω (teínō), or from τίσις (tísis, retribution), from τίνω (tínō, to pay a price as a penalty, expiate), respectively, as Hesiod attempts to explain. Compare Doric Greek τίτας (títas), Ionic Greek τίτης (títēs, avenger, punisher).
