Meaning of the baby name NEPTUNE.

  

NEPTUNE.  From Roman Neptunus (q.v.), perhaps meaning "sea water" or "of the sea."

NEPTUNE, NEPTUNUS, a heathen god, son of Saturn and Ops, and brother to Jupiter, Pluto, and Juno.  He was devoured by his father the day of his birth, and again restored to life by means of Metis, who gave Saturn a certain potion.  Pausanias says that his mother concealed him in a sheep-fold in Arcadia, and she imposed upon her husband, telling him that she had brought a colt into the world, which was instantly devoured by Saturn.  Neptune shared with his brothers the empire of Saturn, and received as his portion the kingdom of the sea... (Pantologia, A New Cyclopaedia, Good, v.8, 1813)
