who is Kheloni?

Our name is derived from a Greek myth about a nymph named Chelone (“Kheloni”).

This nymph was bold enough to refuse an invitation to attend Zeus and Hera’s wedding. Her reason, she said, was that she preferred staying home. This enraged the Gods.

Hermes delivered her punishment.

He turned her into a sea turtle, cursing her to carry her house on her for all eternity.
