Seth

Seth was the third child of Adam and Eve, so named because God gave Eve another son after Abel had been killed. In Egyptian mythology, Seth was a god who was in the form of an animal with no zoological equivalent and is hence identified with many animals. Today, this easy-going name is more popular than its ever been.
