    For the best answers, search on this site https://shorturl.im/avf48

    Go back to your teacher and ask him or she to better define the project. Do they expect you to find 75 specific mythological heroes/heroines, Gods, Goddesses or Beasts that are currently used in some manner today? (much easier!!) Or do they want categories or genres where myths are used?? (This would be harder) For example -- the God Hermes/ Mercury. He is used as the Name for several companies worldwide. He is the brand symbol for FTD florists. Mercury is the brand name of one model of Ford Motor cars. One of Hermes/Mercury's main symbol as a Greek/Roman God was the caduceus. The staff that has entwined, winged snakes. This is sometimes used as a symbol of medicine and/or medical practice, especially in North America, due to widespread confusion with the traditional medical symbol, the rod of Asclepius, which has only a single snake and no wings. Mercury was used by NASA as a mission name for one of the space programs. Also used as inspiration in painting by the Romanticism painters. Company names, company symbols or as a name/symbol in advertising, names for constellations and planets, for art, painting, plays, marathon running (from the Battle of Marathon), the modern Olympics, etc..

    This was weak. How did you miss the days of the week, or words like hymen, the term "son of a ____". This was shallow, but I guess a start.
