What Does X-helion Mean?

We always have people asking us where our name comes from or what it means. For this reason, we’re putting the official answer here online to satiate all of your curiosities.

Helion is the Greek name of the Titan god of the Sun. He also went by the name Helios or Helius. Each morning, Helion would ride out of the Eastern sky on a chariot pulled by four horses with manes of fire. Helion would bring with him light and heat into the world and would take it with him into the Western horizon each night.
