In Greek mythology, Cynosura was a nymph (an Oread) on Mount Ida, Crete. According to some legends, she nursed Zeus when he was being hidden from his father, Cronus. In gratitude, Zeus placed her in the stars when she died.

Cynosura is also another name for the constellation Ursa Minor or its brightest star, Polaris.
