Stage name taken on by a norwegian musician, apparently meaning "bringer of death" in greek. Famous for being in the band Mayhem, a fantastic black metal band, and for being killed by Varg Vikernes

The birth name of the musician in question is Øystein Aarseth, and his stage name was nicked from an old Hellhammer song. As for the meaning, I'd have to say that "bringer of death" is only an appelation, not a translation.
In Greek literature, the name Euronymous turns up as one of the suitors killed by Odysseus in Homer's second epic.
