Thalassa is just the Greek word for 'ocean' or 'sea'. It is also sometimes the name of a deity, because several deities are like that: e.g. 'Helios' means both the god of the sun and the sun itself, or 'Ouranos' refers both to the sky god and to the sky itself.

WotC really hasn't been very good with Greek mythology or language in Theros. You mention that they got a 'ph' into Purphoros' name, referencing Hephaestus? It's not a reference. 'Purphoros' is just a Greek word. It means 'fire-bearer' or 'fire-carrier'. ('Pur' is 'pyr': the same Greek letter can be transliterated as 'u' or 'y'. Compare also Polukranos, whose name is just the word 'many-headed': think poly-cranium.)

Anyway, if you can read any ancient Greek, the names of Therosian things are hilariously dumb. (My favourite is 'Perisophia', which literally means 'about wisdom' or 'concerning wisdom'. 'Perisophia the Philosopher' sounds about as silly as the great Roman thinker Philosophus Maximus.)

Thassa is pretty much teh best of the five higher gods, and the minor gods dont even compare. Her, Ephara and Pharika (art wise, ability wise she is poor) are my favorite gods. Goddesses rather but you know logic there Wizards.

I find it ridiculous that her little starfish is better than her for the early game.

Three-drop Gods, like Planeswalkers, are pretty damn powerful. This one is certainly no exception.

In all honesty, she is the strongest of the Gods. The only one that sees play across a variety of formats, and is a force to be reckoned with in every single one. 5/5.
