This name derives from the Ancient Greek “hḗlios (ἥλιος)” Latinized as Helius (sun, east, day, sunshine), which in turn derives from the Proto-Hellenic “*hāwélios”. Helios was the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology. Helios was envisioned as a beautiful god crowned with a shining halo of the Sun, who drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day to earth-circling Oceanus and through the world-ocean returned to the East at night. The Greek “ἥλιος” is the inherited word for the Sun, cognate with the Latin “sol” and the Sanskrit “surya”. In Greek mythology, the Heliades (Greek: Ἡλιάδες, “children of the sun”) were the daughters of Helios and Clymene the Oceanid.
