Nike (Greek: Νίκη), in Ancient Greek religion, was the goddess of victory. The Roman equivalent was Victoria. In the most popular version of the myths, she was the daughter of the Titan Pallas and the goddess Styx, and the sister of Kratos (Strength), Bia (Force), and Zelus (Zeal). The name Nike is best known in popular culture as the name of an Oregonian sporting goods manufacturer famous for its running shoes.

Nike in "Miss Manners' Guide to Greek Missology"Edit

Nike was the Greek goddess of victory, but after the Greeks stopped winning victories, she retired from that business and left it to her Roman cousin Victoria. Nike then invented a brand of running shoes, which was halted after a trademark infringement suit from Hermes.
