Echo, the Nymph of Steady Reply
According to Greek mythology, Echo was a beautiful mountain nymph who loved to always have the last word. Because of her loquacity, she was given the task of distracting Zeus' wife Hera so that Zeus could enjoy his love affairs with the other Nymphs unhindered.

Until one day Hera discovered Echo's deceit and decided to punish the nymph; the punishment was to take away all Echo's words and only have her repeat the last words of the others.
