The Greek Goddess List

The A-Z Greek Goddess list, is designed as a useful resource as people are always asking me about the names of the Greek Goddesses and their main roles or powers.

This list to seeks to answer both these  important questions. When researching this information, I became frustrated that I was unable to find a Greek Goddess list in the format that I wanted.

Many lists I discovered included all the Gods, heroes and mythological creatures from Greek mythology. Even those lists that contained just Goddesses, you still had to click on each individual name to find out what their main characteristics were.

The alphabetical, Greek Goddess list below is designed to contain brief facts about each of the main Goddesses. I hope you will also enjoy finding out about some of the lesser known characters, for example Iris is the Goddess associated with rainbows.
