Where does the word "fame" come from? Like most words we use every day, it is named after a Greek deity.
The original Greek word "Klymenê" was transcribed to Latin as "Clymene" and then today's word "fame" (klymenos). Is this why we say that everybody has a claim to fame? Is the word "claim" also a spin-off from the Greek Goddess Klymenê?
