I think the key phrase here is "best candidate", but even the below could be said to have context at-
While I can certainly understand how it could be that ancient sailors could give the doorway between the safe sea and scary ocean that particular name, other places might also have held the same beloved name; not unlike if I were to use the name, "book of God", that would even now mean something different to different folks, but especially so, in different places and times. Wasn't Hercules an older idea that the Greeks borrowed from the Lydians?, along with the Lydian purple, and the Lydian mode (soft sweet strain of music)?
