Triton is the name of a figure from Greek Mythology, Tritonis the Son of Poseidon and Amphitrite.

Triton is depicted as a merman with a human upper body and fish-like tail, as he lives with his parents under the sea. He was often referred to as the messenger of the sea.

In the Roman Era, the name Triton began to be used more commonly to describe any merman bearing a trident. These aquatic creatures were depicted as having webbed hands and feet with colorful hair and blue skin. Tritons dwell in the deep sea and act as protectors of the sea. Triton names are usually melodic. Female tritons names mostly end in 'yn', and for males a common ending is 'ys'.
