This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Ádrastos ‎(Ἄδραστος)”, meaning “inescapable”. In Greek mythology, Adrasteia was a nymph who was charged by Rhea with nurturing the infant Zeus, in secret in the Dictaean cave, to protect him from his father Cronus. Adrastus, traditionally translated as “inescapable”, was a legendary king of Argos during the war of the Seven Against Thebes. He was a son of Talaus and Lysimache. Pausanias calls his mother Lysianassa, and Hyginus calls her Eurynome.
