Cupid began as a Greek God. The Cupid we know and always associate with Valentine’s Day was once known to the ancient Greeks as Eros, the god of love.

According to History.com, Eros, the son of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, would use two sets of arrows. One arrow for love and another for hate. He used his arrows to play with the emotions of his targets. It wasn’t until Romans told stories of his mischief that he adopted the childlike appearance we recognize today.
