In eighteenth and nineteenth century England, it was considered a great offense to say "By God". Instead, men would say "BY Jove". Jove is an alternative name for the Roman god Jupiter. By saying "By Jove!", they could be saying "By God!", without committing a social offense.

Greek goddess of the hunt. She was protector of all wild things, all creature young(including humans), and has some part in childbirth(she helped her mother, Leto, deliver her twin brother Apollo). She was a virgin goddess, and required all her female followers to be the same. She WAS NOT the goddess of the moon. This mistaken idea is caused by her identification with the Roman goddess Diana. The Greek goddess of the moon was Selene.
Artemis cared not for love or romance, but only the chase.
