Lelantos

Lelantos, or Lelantus (Greek: Λήλαντος), was the Titan father of Aura by Periboa. He was the son of Coeus and Phoebe and brother to Leto and Asteria. His name was derived from the Greek words lêthô, lanthanô, and lelathon, meaning "to escape notice," "move unseen" or "go unobserved." To scholars, the etymology of his name may have implied that Lelantos was possibly the Titan god of air and the unseen, presiding over the subtle breezes of the wind.
