I would like to note that I take offense at that quiz listing Aphrodite and Eros as the same entity, and, more importantly, at the Greek god of death being called "Mors." Mors, of course, is Latin -- Greek would be "Thanatos," which is clearly a cooler word anyway. I am also displeased with the spelling of Hercules in the Latin way (instead of "Heracles.") But the quiz gets points for having Morpheus in his proper capacity, and for knowing that Nemesis was female.

That is all.

Yeah, they've clearly fucked some of these up. and Athena isn't goddess of Education so much as of wisdom, and crafts, and ultimately technology.

The Mors/Thanatos thing is forgivable, in my opinion, but then again I'm not studying classics, or classical linguistics, or anything like that.

I am, apparently, Hecate...
Although the first time I filled out the form, it crashed the page.
I'm with Dan on the Mors/Thanatos being unforgivable. Thanatos is one of the coolest words... ever. As for Aphrodite/Eros - that just pisses me off because people see Eros as Cupid. Eros could kick the fucking bejeezus out of any of the other gods, and he does. Except maybe Cthulu, for obvious reasons. Aphrodite is kinda silly.
