    In Greek mythology, Clotho was the youngest of the three Sisters of Fate and the spinner of the Threads of Fate, often referred to as the Threads of Life. She is often depicted as a young maiden. In Roman Mythology, Her name is Nona.

    Ah I wee the connection:
    Clotho

    by Hilary Thomas

    Clotho, a goddess from Greek mythology, is the youngest of the three Fates, but one of the oldest goddesses in Greek mythology. She is a daughter of Zeus and Themis. Each fate has a certain job, whether it be measuring thread, spinning it on a spindle, or cutting the thread at the right length. Clotho is the spinner, and she spins the thread of human life with her distaff. The length of the string will determine how long a certain person’s life will be. She is also known to be the daughter of Night, to indicate the darkness and obscurity of human destiny. No one knows for sure how much power Clotho and her sisters have, however; they often disobey the ruler, Zeus, and other gods. For some reason, the gods seem to obey them, whether because the fates do possess greater power, or as some sources suggest, their existence is part of the order of the Universe, and this the gods cannot disturb.

    Etymology:
    Spinner

    She is also said to be able to control time.

    @Marum-In Norse mythology, their equivalent of the three Fates also spin thread for the same purpose, and are evidently not under control of the other gods. Indeed, the Norse gods are considered mortal, as is the world. Think of Rangarok, which is the fated end of the world.

    When a ho is clot, you need something to open it. Gentlemen, please proceed with your instrument.

  19. Droll not Troll | 5:06 pm |

    The name choice puzzles me. Wouldn’t most Japanese have a problem pronouncing “Clotho”?

  20. Droll not Troll | 7:16 pm |

    @Big Fat Cat | 11:07 am: The mind boggles!
    “Brace yersel’, lassie; bagpipes comin’ through! 😛

  21. Droll not Troll | 7:18 pm |

    @Seventy2rd o clock | 5:41 am: Pretty close. I believe it actually says “Bar and Dining”.

  22. Marum | 3:35 am |

    @Long Tom 0729hrs.

    Unlike the Greek, and to lesser extent the Roman, my knowledge of Norse Mythology is sketchy. I’m Odin up to it. In fact, no one could claim I’m Vanir about it.
