ACHILLES.  Latin form of Greek Achilleus (q.v.), traditionally rendered "without lips." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884). 
    Achilles G. Rizzoli (d. 1981), an American outsider artist unrecognized before his death. (Wiki)

    King of the Myrmidons (in Thessaly), the hero of Homer's epic poem called the Iliad.  He is represented as brave and relentless.  The poem begins with a quarrel between him and Agamemnon, the commander-in-chief of the allied Greeks; in consequence of which Achilles refused to go to battle.  The Trojans prevail, and Achilles sends forth his friend Patroclos to oppose them.  Patroclos fell; and Achilles, in anger, rushing into the battle, killed Hector, the commander of the Trojans.  He himself, according to later poems, fell in battle a few days afterwards, before Troy was taken. (Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, Brewer, 1905)
