Etymology Hesione is assumed named for the unfortunate Trojan princess known from Greek mythology. However Lamarck is silent on the etymology. Salazar-Vallejo (2017) presents this version of the story: "In Greek mythology, Hesione is mostly regarded as a famous Trojan Lady, daughter of King Laomedon, who offered her life as a compensation to Poseidon after the God had sent a monster to destroy the city. However, Laomedon also asked Heracles for help and if he could save Troy, Hesione would be his wife. She was left naked on the rocks in a sea cliff out of Troy. Heracles and Telamon saved Hesione by killing the monster, but King Laomedon changed his mind and forgot his offer; this pushed Heracles to destroy Troy and later, Heracles gave Hesione to Telamon" [details]

Homonymy Hesione in Lamarck (1818) in Hesionidae is available because Hesione Rafinesque, 1815 in Coleoptera is regarded as a nomen nudum, and appears not to have been used subsequently. There is also a subsequent junior homonym, Hesione Robineau-Desvoidy, 1863 in Diptera [details]

Etymology Hesione is assumed named for the unfortunate Trojan princess known from Greek mythology. However Lamarck is silent on the etymology.

Heracles and Telamon saved Hesione by killing the monster, but King Laomedon changed his mind and forgot his offer; this pushed Heracles to destroy Troy and later, Heracles gave Hesione to Telamon" [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine as treated as feminine by Lamarck and early subsequent authors, also likely named after a Greek female name. [details]

Homonymy Hesione in Lamarck (1818) in Hesionidae is available because Hesione Rafinesque, 1815 in Coleoptera is regarded as a nomen nudum, and appears not to have been used subsequently. There is also a subsequent junior homonym, Hesione Robineau-Desvoidy, 1863 in Diptera [details]
