Aphrodite's Child - Mom was a true family person

Aphrodite's Child band name idea - Sandro_Botticelli_-_Birth of Venus_-_Google_Art_Project_-_editedProgressive rock band the best known members of which are Vangelis Papathanassiou (who later managed quite well without his last name) and bass player and singer Artemios Ventouris ('Demis') Roussos.

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty and raw sex, born from sea foam after the old god Cronus had cast the skilfully cut off genitals of heavens' guardian Uranus into the sea. Don't try this at home!

This Aphrodite must have been an awfully attractive female, with the usual consequences. She shared the bed with Ares (successfully so, judging by their prominent offspring that included Eros, Phobos, Deimos, Harmonia, Arethousa, Adrestia, Anteros, Himerus and Atesia), Hermes (yield: Tyche, Rhodes, Peitho, Eunomia and Hermaphroditos), Dionysus (Aglaea, Euphrosyne, Thalia, Hymenaios and Priapus) and Anchises (Aeneas).

In short, a true family person, with room left in her household for a few extra members such as Vangelis and Demis and their buddies.
