hector:Troy的赫克托尔(Hector),Priam之子,因勇猛而著称。变成单词后的意思是——凌辱,威吓。
hector 威吓,威逼

来自古希腊城邦特洛伊第一勇士Hector,后被街头土匪当祖师爷崇拜,成为土匪代称,引申词义威吓,威逼。其字面意思为坚持者,有韧劲的人,来自希腊语ekhein,持有,保持,持续。参照电影《特洛伊》。

hector (n.)
late 14c., "a valiant warrior," 1650s as slang for "a blustering, turbulent, pervicacious, noisy fellow" [Johnson], Heck for short, both in reference to the provocative character of Hektor, Trojan hero, oldest son of Priam and Hecuba, in the "Iliad." It represents Greek hektor, literally "holder, stayer;" an agent noun from ekhein "to have, hold, possess" (see scheme). The word was used mid-1600s in reference to London street gangs. As a proper name it is rare in England but used in Scotland to render Gaelic Eachdonn.
hector (v.)
