General information

In Greek mythology  wp, Gaia, (GAY-ə or GAH-yə or, rarer, JEE-ə from Ancient Greek  wp Γαῖα, a poetical form of Γῆ , Ge, "land" or "earth") also spelled Gaea, was the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities  wp. Gaia was the great mother of all: the primal Greek Mother Goddess; creator and giver of birth to the Earth and all the Universe; the heavenly gods wp, the Titans wp, and the Giants wp were born to her. The gods reigning over their classical pantheon were born from her union with Uranus wp (the sky), while the sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus wp (the sea). Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Terra wp.


The Greek wp word γαῖα (transliterated as gaia) is a collateral form of γῆ (, Doric wp γᾶ ga and probably δᾶ da) meaning Earth  wp, a word of uncertain origin. R. S. P. Beekes wp has suggested a Pre-Greek  wp origin.

In Mycenean Greek  wp Ma-ka (trans. as Ma-ga, "Mother Gaia") also contains the root ga-.
