U r a n i a

U r a n i a (/jʊˈreɪniə/; Ancient Greek: Οὐρανία; heavenly, or of heaven) was, in Greek mythology, the muse of astronomy and a daughter of Zeus by Mnemosyne. Those who are most concerned with philosophy and the heavens are dearest to her. Those who have been instructed by her she raises aloft to heaven, for it is a fact that imagination and the power of thought lift men's souls to heavenly heights..

Aphrodite Urania (Ancient Greek: Οὐρανία) was an epithet of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, signifying heavenly or spiritual, to distinguish her from her more earthly aspect of Aphrodite Pandemos  (Ancient Greek: Πάνδημος; pandēmos, of or pertaining to all the people, public), common to all the people.

Hetairai /hɪˈtaɪraɪ/, sing. hetaira /hɪˈtaɪrə/; also hetaera /hɪˈtɪrə/, pl. hetaerae /hɪˈtɪriː/ (Ancient Greek: ἑταίρα, companion, pl. ἑταῖραι) were courtesans — educated, sophisticated female companions. Although most of them engaged in sexual relations with their patrons, hetairai were not simple prostitutes.

P.S. Colitis comes from the Greek word kolon meaning "large intestine," and itis meaning "inflammation." Put the two words together and you have "large intestine inflammation."
