Cat in Roman Myths

The cat was the animal of Libera, the Roman mythological personification of Liberty, because it hates to be constrained. In Greek mythology, the goddess of the moon is Selene, the sister of Helios, god of the son. The "Sea of Serenity" is derived from Selene's name, which in turn is where Queen and Princess Serenity get their names. In Latin, "Selene" is Luna, which is obviously where Luna the cat gets her name from.

However, the goddess of the hunt, Artemis, is often confused with Selene, so Artemis sometimes is called the goddess of the moon, too. In Roman mythology, Artemis is called Diana. The two cats, Artemis and Diana, get their names from these alternate interpretations.
