Meaning: from Greek elements pan “all” and doron “gift” meaning “all gifted” or “all giving”.
In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first mortal woman created by the gods for the Titan Prometheus, who had stolen fire and given it to the humans. Displeased with this, Zeus and the other gods created Pandora, each giving her a particular gift such as beauty, cunning, needlework, etc., explaining the meaning of her name such since she’d been given a gift by the gods. Pandora is given a jar by Zeus and warned never to open it; her curioisty got the best of her and when she finally did open the jar she let out all the evils in the world, except for hope, which remained in the jar, although I’ve never understood that particular part of the myth. If hope remained in the jar, wouldn’t that mean it never got into the world?
