Ceres was the goddess of grain. I make bread, so I thought this was appropriate. The professor said that I could spell it either way because in Latin the K and the C are pronounced the same.
Well... now I find that Keres does indeed refer to mythical beings, but spelled with a K, they are goddesses or spirits or violent death in Greek mythology. In Latin and spelled with a C, Ceres is the benevolent goddess of harvest. Since I would like to be associated with benevolent behavior, I have tried to change the names associated with my various blogs. Please forgive me if I have made a mess of it.
My mother had studied mythology, and she often told me stories that included these myths. I certainly don't worship at their shrines, but I do believe we must understand the myths and meanings that names and places carry. Now that I have sorted out some of these meanings, I want to enjoy them. Ceres with a C, and her name is the basis for cereal--good and wholesome--and we celebrate bread!
