greek (Κορωνίς)

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “coronís (κορωνίσ)”. There are several characters in Greek mythology by the name Coronis. 1) Coronis, daughter of Phlegyas, king of the Lapiths, was one of Apollo's lovers. While Apollo was away, Coronis, already pregnant with Asclepius, fell in love with Ischys, son of Elatus. 2) Coronis was the daughter of king Coronaeus of Phocis. She fled from Poseidon and was changed into a crow by Athena. 3) Coronis was in the Hyades family (the rainy ones), a sisterhood of nymphs that bring rain. The hyades were daughters of atlas and sisters to the Pleiades and the Hesperides.
