Did you know that Thanatos in greek means death?

Of course, that’s probably the reason, why I picked it for my url.. Also Thanatosos/Thanatos was the greek god of death, or even better the personification of death (but later Hades overshadowed him, kinda). Furthermore Sigmund Freud calls the death drive in his psychoanalytic theory ‘Thanatos’, and describes it as the drive towards death, self-destruction, blah blah blah. So a death instinct. That’s probably the main reason why I picked it. Got kinda fascinated, when we talked about it in - I don’t know how you call it in english - pedagogic class (I think, idk).
