Named for a daughter of Poseidon and Gaea who was thrown into the sea off Sicily by Zeus {see planet  (5731)} where by swallowing and spewing water she created a whirlpool. Odysseus {see planet  (1143)}, concerned with avoiding Charybdis, lost six of his men to the monster Scylla {see planet  (155)}. Charybdis is an island, close to Scylla, where a whirlpool was. A giant woman was spying water in and out three times per day. (H 42)
