Eurynome was the name of two noted women: the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys who bore the Graces to Zeus, and the daughter of Nisus, king of Megara, who married Glaucus and bore Bellerophon to Poseidon. The name means either 'wide wandering' or 'wide rule', from eurys, 'wide' and nomos, 'district', 'range' or nomao, 'to direct', 'control'. Both senses are ones of good omen.
