Pan (Faunus) Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

The word "panic" comes from Pan, who was said to have the power to create fear and terror in people and gods with his piercing scream. (Source.)

Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie's "boy who never grew up," is named after the Greek god, Pan. (Pan kind of seems like he never grew up too, right?) (Source.)

In the dark and beautiful movie, Pan's Labyrinth, a little girl attempts to escape the horrors of her life with a creepy and Pan-like creature named Faun. Spooky, yes. But worth a viewing.

Pan vs. Zamfir, "master" of the pan flute. Who would win? You be the judge.
