Etymology[edit]

The etymology of the name is contested. According to one view, the name Odysseus derives from the verb ὀδύσσομαι ‎(odússomai, to hate), which is from Proto-Indo-European *h₃ed- ‎(to hate). However, it has been also suggested that it could be of non-Greek origin and probably of non-Indo-European origin too. According to Beekes Ὀδυσσεύς and Ἀχιλλεύς came both from the same Pre-Greek language
