Etymology of DEDALOUS

The word "Daedalus" originates from Greek mythology and is derived from the Greek name Δαίδαλος (Daidalos).

In mythology, Daedalus was a skilled craftsman, architect, and artist. He is most famously known for his creation of the Labyrinth on the island of Crete, where the ferocious Minotaur was held captive. Daedalus was also the father of Icarus, the character known for his attempt to escape Crete using wings made of feathers and wax, but tragically flying too close to the sun, resulting in his demise.

The name "Daedalus" itself is believed to have a complex etymology. It may have originated from the Greek verb "daídein", which means "to work cunningly" or "to be skilful".
