This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Phríxos (Φρίξος)”. In Greek mythology, Phrixus was the son of Athamas, king of Boiotia, and Nephele (a goddess of clouds). His twin sister Helle and he were hated by their stepmother, Ino. Phrixus and Chalciope had four sons, who later joined forces with the Argonauts. The oldest was Argos / Argus, Phrontis, Melas, and Cytisorus.
