Herakles) name origin is also unclear however the knot became heavily associated with the Olympian throughout history. There are thoughts that it comes from his fight with the Nemean lion or perhaps a test from Hera who presented him with a complex knot. associated with love & marriage is likely due to Hercules himself.
