Khione Nymph of the North Wind Picture
Khionê, a snow nymph, daughter of Boreas, Greek god of the north wind. She was loved by Poseidon. My true last name (Heonis) is a derivative of Khionê, and was spelled Xionis before it was changed via immigration officials. No one could pronounce my last name so often times I thought of changing it to "Snow" but figured there would be too many "she drifted" jokes.
