This name derives from the Ancient Greek “damnáō (δαμνάω) damázō (δαμάζω), which in turn from the Sanskrit “dāmyati”, meaning “tame, overpower, subdue, conquer, vanquish”. Damon, son of Damonides, was a Greek musicologist of the fifth century. He is credited as teacher and advisor of Pericles. Damon's expertise was supposed to be musicology, though some believed this was a cover for a broader influence over Pericles' political policy. In Greek mythology, the legend of Damon and Pythias (or Phintias) symbolizes trust and loyalty in a true friendship.
