NéMEIN > NéMESIS
greek (Νέμεσις)

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “némein (νέμειν) Némesis (Νέμεσις)”, meaning “to give what is due, retribution, righteous anger”. Nemesis, also called Rhamnousia / Rhamnusia (goddess of Rhamnous) at her sanctuary at Rhamnous, north of Marathon, was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods). The Greeks personified vengeful fate as a remorseless goddess: the goddess of revenge.
