Pythagoras was his nickname. Pythagoras' real name was Pythagoras of Samos and that is how he was called. i.e. a guy knew him and said " greetings Pythagoras of Samos. " Only close friends would have called him Pythagoras. He is know just known as Pythagoras to modern people because we do not have such formalities as they did back then.


Pythagoris was known as the "hyperborean Apollo" a being different from man or the gods.
