The name HERMOGENES is in II Timothy 1:15. Alexander Cruden says the name
means "begotten of Mercury."
1) Does that mean "-GENES" means "begotten" in HERMOGENES?
2) Was it common for pagan parents to name their children after pagan gods?
3) Are their other New Testament names that contain the name of a pagan god?
4) Are their other words besides "MONOGENES" in Koine, Attic, or Ionic Greek
that containe the particle "-GENES?"
