The original name of my website was “zugos.”
The word comes from a Greek word that literally means couple, balance, or yoke, and figuratively means servitude. The Greek word comes from the same root as words with meanings such as join, team, pair, fasten, and band, and as the word “zygote.”
A zygote is a cell formed by the union of two gametes or, broadly, the developing individual produced from such a cell.
