In Greek mythology Castor (or Kastor) and Polydeuces (sometimes called Pollux) were the twin sons of Leda and the brothers of Helen of Troy and Clytemnestra. They are known as the Gemini Latin for twins. According to Liddell and Scott's Lexicon kastor is Greek for 'beaver' and poludeukeis means 'very sweet'.
