Talos was the giant Zeus gave to his lover, Europa to protect her. I used the name for a Rottweiler in my novel, The Carbon Cross, then, in real life, when I gave my wife a Rott last autumn, we named her Talos.
In my prior novel, The Carbon Trap, I had used Styx 'God of the Underworld' and Perses 'The Titan god of destruction', as the names for two Rotts.
