Chrona comes from the Ancient Greek word Χρόνος (Chronos, also transliterated as Khronos or Latinized as Chronus) that means "time".
Chronos is the personification of Time in pre-Socratic philosophy and later literature. Chronos was imagined as a god, serpentine shape in form, with three heads—those of a man, a bull, and a lion. He and his consort, serpentine Ananke (Inevitability), circled the primal world egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky. In the Orphic cosmogony, the unaging Chronos produced Aether and Chaos, and made a silvery egg in the divine Aether. It produced the hermaphroditic god Phanes, who gave birth to the first generation of gods and is the ultimate creator of the cosmos.
