Revealing the Identity of the Mythological Name ODYSSEUS (ULYSSES)  

 and Also His Immediate Family Names

By Polat Kaya



Homer’s Iliad and Odysseus (Ulysses) are two magnificent ancient epic stories.  They have been presented to the world as Greek epic stories but I doubt that the stories are Greek stories and that the characters are real people!  First of all, the name HOMER is the Anglicized form of the Greek form OMEROS. And OMEROS is a Hellenized form of the Turkish name OMER.  Hence, it is not a Greek name originally. The letter H is a voiceless consonant, thus, linguistically there is no difference between HOMER and the Turkish OMER (OMAR) - which is a name for men in Turkish. Additionally, the name HOMER read as “HO-M-ER” would be the Turkish expression “O Ma ER” meaning “he is Moon Man”.  This is interesting because the Trojans were also kins with the so-called “IONIANS”, that is, the Turkish “AY HANs” meaning “the Moon Lords”.

The Romans "adopted" the Trojan prince AENEAS as their ancestor - in order to give themselves nobility.   It is important to note that AENEAS was fromTroy and was an AYHAN man. The Latinized name AENEAS, rearranged as “AE-ANES”, is the altered form of Turkish “AY HANIZ” meaning “we are Moon Lords”.

Even the name OMEROS, when rearranged as “O-M-ER-OS”, is found to be a form of the Turkish expression “O Ma ER US meaning “he is wise Moon Man”.  Additionally, if the name OMEROS is rearranged as “OOS-ERM”, it is found to be a form of the Turkish expression “OGUZ EREM” meaning “I am Oguz Man”.  This definition in Turkish makes him a Tur/Turk/Oguz man - before Hellenization.  Trojans were Tur/Turk/Oguz people and Homer was a Trojan! The city of Troy was referred to as ILIUM which is from the Turkish expression İLİM O meaning “it is my country”.

In view of the above findings, and since Homer was a Trojan, and since he called Troy (TUR ÖY) as “ILIUM”, that is, with the Turkish word İLİM O”, this makes Homer very likely to be a Tur/Turk/Oguz man - rather than a Greek. We should also recall that two works of Homer (Omeros) were heavily edited inAlexandria by some Greek scholars.  It is highly likely that their so-called "editing" was not just a simple editing (i.e., correcting mistakes here and there), but rather, was a complete Hellenization of these two ancient epic stories.  After all, the Greek language is an artificial language that has been made up from the Turkish language by way of altering and restructuring Turkish words and phrases into formats that are called “Greek”. The name “Greek”, that is, the name of the “Greek” language, is from the Turkish word “GIRIK” (KIRIK) meaning “broken up”. And that is exactly what the Greek language is. Its words are all broken up Turkish words that have been reassembled in a new format – thus the “broken up” aspect of it.

It can be said that all names in the Iliad and Odysseus are mythological names made up in accordance with the ancient Turanian religious beliefs. They represent concepts that were first composed in Turkish and were then Hellenized.  When I say "Hellenization", I do not mean simple translation.  I mean that character names were altered and restructured so that they did not appear Turkish any more. Also  character descriptions were blurred so that the reader does not know what they personify in reality. 




Wikipedia gives us the following background information: 

“Odysseus (play  Greek:Ὀδυσσεύς, Odusseus)  or Ulysses (Latin: Ulyssēs, Ulixēs) was a legendary Greek king of Ithaca and the hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey. Odysseus also plays a key role in Homer's Iliad and other works in the Epic Cycle.

King of Ithaca, husband of Penelope, father of Telemachus, and son of Laërtes and Anticlea, Odysseus is renowned for his guile and resourcefulness, and is hence known by the epithet Odysseus the Cunning (mētis, or "cunning  intelligence"). He is most famous for the ten eventful years he took to return home after the ten-year Trojan War and his famous Trojan Horse trick.”


In Homer’s stories, Odysseus (Ulysses) was the “King of ITHACA” (ITHAKA). Geographically, ITHACA consists of two islands joined together with a narrow piece of land in the “Ionian Sea”. This is very important to keep in mind. When the Greek name ITHAKA is rearranged as “IKH–ATA”, we see that ITHAKA is the altered, restructured and Hellenized Turkish saying of “IKI ADA - meaning “two islands”.  Thus the Greek name ITHAKA of these islands is definitely fabricated from Turkish!

Additionally, the Greek name ODYSSEUS or the Romanized Latin name ULYSSES, who was one very important person in the Greek army, represents a very conniving, intelligent and tricky person.  Almost in every event of the epic story of Iliad and also Odysseus, ODYSSEUS is present in most events, but while most of his people get killed, or drowned, or some monster eats them, nothing happens to Odysseus. The reason for these successes is due to the fact that A HUMAN BRAIN WROTE THE STORY and therefore that brain generated the story as he pleases.  The author can give any attribute to any of the characters in the story as he pleases. In this case, the author is HOMER himself.  Secondly, the character named Odysseus (Ulysses) is a personification of a very important and religious concept of the ancient Turanian civilization. This we can see as follows:

When the mythological name “ODYSSEUS” is rearranged letter-by-letter as “EU-SOSSDY”, we find that the name ODYSSEUS is an altered, restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression EYÜ SÖZDÜ” (İYİ SÖZDÜ) meaning “it is the good WORD”, “it is the well said word”.

Alternatively, if the name “ODYSSEUS” is rearranged as “O-US-SYSDE”, we also find that the name ODYSSEUS is an altered, restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression “O US SÖZDİ” (O US SÖZDÜ) meaning “it is the WISE WORD”, “it is the clever  word”

With these definitions in Turkish, we find that the character ODYSSEUS is a personification of the “WISE WORD” - that travels all over the world – with no time limit. We must note that while man himself is mortal, his words can be immortal!  After a man dies, his words can carry on living for a long time. Wise words can escape all kinds of human barriers - and under the most adverse conditions, can come back very strong and stay in the minds of many people all over the world for a long time.  Case in point, we are now discussing the HOMER story some three thousand years after it was written - even though the author has been dead for some three thousand years.

Turkish word EYÜ (İYİ) means “good, well”, SÖZ means “word, speech”, SÖZDÜ means “it is word, it is speech”, US means “wisdom, knowledge, experience; wise”. 


Similarly, when the Romanized form of the name ULYSSES is rearranged letter-by-letter as “ULE-SYSS”, we again find that the name ULYSSES is an altered, restructured and Romanized form of the Turkish expression “ULU SÖZ” meaning “GREAT WORD” (wise word).  Hence, this Romanized version of the name is also fabricated from Turkish and Turkish alone!  Again the character ULYSSES is a personification of the concept of “great Word”.  Thus, the decipherments of these two Aryanized words verify each other and clearly reveal the identity of the mythological character ODYSSEUS or ULYSSES. Therefore, ODYSSEUS or ULYSSES was “another characterization of the human mind, human word and human knowledge” - just like the Turkish“BILGAMESH” (Semitized as “GILGAMESH”), Turkish “ER AKLI US (Hellenized as “HERAKLEUS”), Turkish “ER AKILI” (Etruscan “HERAKLEI”), Turkish “BILGETIR” (Phoenician “MELQART”), and so on!

Interestingly, even when the term MELQART is rearranged as “AQELMTR”, we find that it is the restructured form of the Turkish word “AQILıMTuR” (AKILIMDIR) meaning “it is my mind, it is my knowledge, it  is my wisdom”. Melqart was referred to as “TYRIAN HERAKLES” - which is nothing but the Turkish “TURANLI ERAKLI” meaning “the wisdom of man from Turan” 



Wikipaedia provides the following background information about the Phoenician Melqart:

Melqart, properly Phoenician Milk-Qart  "King of the City",[1] less accurately Melkart, Melkarth or Melgart, Akkadian  Milqartu, was tutelary god of the Phoenician city of Tyre as Eshmun protected Sidon. Melqart was often titled  Ba‘l Ṣūr "Lord of Tyre", the ancestral king of the royal line. In Greek, byinterpretatio graeca he was identified with Heracles and referred to as the Tyrian Herakles


Additionally, when the Akkadian MILQARTU is rearranged as “MILQATUR”, we find that the term MILQARTU is an altered and restructured form of the Turkish word “BİLGATUR” (BİLGİTUR) - meaning “it is knowledge”. In this anagram, the letter B in the Turkish source text has been changed to letter Mwhile the Turkish suffix TUR has been changed into “RTU”. Thus, the source text for all of these names were taken from ancient Turkish - although they have been distorted!

In the above citing from Wikipedia reference, it is said that: “Melqart, properly Phoenician Milk-Qart  "King of the City",[1] less accurately Melkart,Melkarth or Melgart, Akkadian  Milqartu, was tutelary god of the Phoenician city of Tyre as Eshmun protected       Sidon.”

Here, it is important to note that the term “Milk” in the Milk-Qart is a Semitized form rather than the original Phoenician form. Milk stands for the Turkish“MELİK” meaning a “ruler”.  And the meaning of “King of the City” has no relation with the concept of “Milqart, Melkart, Melkarth or the Akkadian Milqartu” which all mean Turkish AKILIMTUR and/or BİLGİTUR - as defined above.  


Now, here we remember the so-called “Biblical” saying that “in the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and WORD was GOD….”   Evidently this was also taken from the ancient Turanian civilization and from the Turkish language!

Thus, ODYSSEUS - the personification of WORD - was a “KING” in the epic stories of HOMER – as the WORD is still KING in the present world. Thus,WORD is the KING of the HUMAN MIND and therefore the HUMAN HEAD, that is, Turkish TEPE (BAŞ).  This is what I have been explaining in my writings but it seems that most people are so well conditioned by the fuzzy mythologies of the ancient Semitic, Greek, Roman and other groups that they cannot see in any other direction.  Particularly, when the light is coming from a Turanian source, they somehow turn their heads the other way – and bring dark clouds to block the enlightenment! 

At the beginning of this writing, I said that ODYSSEUS was the King of ITHAKA and ITHAKA was made from Turkish word İKİ ADA meaning “two islands”.  Interestingly, the HUMAN WORD is generated in the human mind - which itself lives in the human BRAIN.  But, THE HUMAN BRAIN IS ALSO MADE UP OF “TWO ISLANDS” (i.e., the two lobes of the brain) - JOINED TO EACH OTHER, as if they were the ITHAKA (i.e., İKİ ADA). This is not a coincidence!  Rather, it shows how amazingly advanced the ancient Turanian civilization was and how well they understood the earth, the sun, the moon, the planets, the universe, living beings, and the position of man in that omnipresent environment! 



At this point, we must remember that ODYSSEUS, the “Wise Word” (i.e., 
US SÖZDÜ, İYİ SÖZDÜ in Turkish), had one son named TELEMAKUS. Since Odysseus is the personification of the WORD, the name Telemakus must also be related to it in the same context.  In this regard, this name is also very revealing when we decipher it.

When the name TELEMAKUS is rearranged as “S-KUMA-TELE, we find that TELEMAKUS is the altered, restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression “aS oKUMA DİLİ” (BİR OKUMA DİLİ) meaning “one formal reading language” or “one unified tongue” which is developed in schools. Indeed, a reading language is made up of many WORDS. Hence, we find that ODYSSEUS - the “Wise Word”, (i.e., US SÖZ in Turkish) and his sonTELEMAKUS - the “Formal Reading Language” (the official tongue), (i.e., Bir Okuma Dili in Turkish) are indeed kin to each other. Any sentence of a language can only be made up with words.  Additionally,  Turkish word DIL, in addition to meaning "language", also means "toungue" - without which, words cannot be  said.

With this decipherment of TELEMAKUS and its definition in Turkish, we have now identified the mythological identity of the name TELEMAKUS - the son of Odysseus.


ODYSSEUS the “Wise Word”, (i.e., US SÖZ), had a wife named PENELOPE. When we decipher the name PENELOPE, this, too, is a revealing name.   

When the name PENELOPE is rearranged as “OPELEN-(L)EP” or OPE(L)EN-LEP”, we find that PENELOPE is the altered, restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression ÖPÜLEN LEB”  (ÖPÜLEN DUDAK) meaning “the lips that are kissed”. So the mythological name PENELOPE  is a personification of the “lips of woman”.  Of course, linguistically, we cannot say words without the “LIPS”, hence, ODYSSEUS the “Wise Word”, (i.e., US SÖZ), is intimately related to the “LIPS” of the human head - which was regarded as God!

With this decipherment of PENELOPE and its definition in Turkish, we have also identified the mythological identity of the noble lady PENELOPE - the wife of Odysseus.

Turkish word LEB (DUDAK) means “lip”, (as can be seen, even the English word LIP is fabricated from Turkish LEB), ÖPMEK means “to kiss”, ÖPÜLENmeans “that which is kissed” referring to the lips.


ODYSSEUS the “Wise Word”, (i.e., US SÖZ), had a mother named ANTICLEA. This, too, is a revealing name - when we decipher it.  

When the name ANTICLEA is rearranged as ACIL-ANET”, we find that ANTICLEA is the altered, restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression AKIL ANADI” meaning “mother of intelligence”, or “the source of the intelligent mind” In other words, it is the human brain.  So the mythological name ANTICLEA, the mother of ODYSSEUS, is a personification of the “human brain”. Without the human brain, no words can be spoken.

Hence, with this decipherment of ANTICLEA and its definition in Turkish, we have also identified the mythological identity of ANTICLEA - the mother of Odysseus.


 Finally, we should also examine the identity of LAERTES - the father of Odysseus. He was also called LAERTIADES.

When the name LAERTIADES is rearranged as “ADE-AL-ERTI-S”, we find that LAERTIADES is the altered, restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish expression ADI AL ERDİ” meaning:

a)  “His name is RED MAN referring to the creator Sky-God and the Red Sun-God of the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples, and the human Head (Tepe) that was the thinking and speaking Red-Man!

b)  “His name is RED MAN also referring to the “Red Man” himself, that is, the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz man who wore red symbols such as red hats, red crowns, red headbands, red clothes, or even colored themselves with red (ochra) paint in accordance with their red Sun-God religion and the sacred human Head (Tepe) concept! We must note that the human brain which nature has put in a "closed box" in the head, also has a reddish color.  This makes this invisibleHUMAN BRAIN as the “AL ER” (Red Man) that represents every human being individually.

So, the mythological name LAERTIADES (LAERTES), that is, the mythological father of Odysseus, is a personification of MAN himself! 

Hence, with this definition in Turkish, we also identified the mythological identity of LAERTIADES (LAERTES) - the father of Odysseus.


Of course, without man and his capacity to speak, there would not be a single word uttured or recorded in the world as we know of, and the world would be a very “LULL world" indeed, that is to say a “LAL DÜNYA” in Turkish. 

Turkish word “LAL” (DİLSİZ) means “speechless, he/she/it who cannot speak, he/she/it who is tongueless”.  We must note that even the so-called English word “LULL” is fabricated from Turkish word LAL - as explained here!

So, in view of these definitions in Turkish which are revealed from the decipherments of these many mythological names, it can be said that the ancient world was one TURKISH speaking TURANIAN world of Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples who ruled the world probably for tens of thousands of years. That was the“TURKISH ERA” of the world, that is, the world of TUR/TURK/OGUZ Peoples!  But that Turanian world was obliterated by some “mythology” writing secretive groups who usurped everything that the ancient Turanian civilization had invented - including: language, writing, reading, schooling, teaching, learning and recording for the future - and many others!
