In Greece, this Goddess is known as Aphrodite, although this name properly refers to her domain of a walled garden or “paradise.”

A masculinized form of her is Priapos, who is borrowed into Latin as Priapus where he becomes the protector of Roman gardens.

The Latin form of this Goddess is Venus.

The name Flora probably is cognate, and the Floralia festival corresponds to the May 1st festivals which are general for these Goddesses who are especially associated with the blooming season of flowers.

Venus gives her name to Friday, a day especially sacred to women wherever there was a seven day week.
