The Aegean Sea, it is connected to the Marmara Sea and Black Sea by the Dardanelles and Bosporus.

The myth;

In ancient times there were various explanations for the name Aegean. It was said to have been named after the Greek town of Aegae, or after Aegea, a queen of the Amazons who died in the sea, or Aigaion, the "sea goat", another name of Briareus, one of the archaic Hecatonchires, or, especially among the Athenians, Aegeus, the father of Theseus, who drowned himself in the sea when he thought his son had died.

The Chinese named Aegean, the love sea- 爱琴海, irony from the derive of the ancient explanation. It've no connection of it at all.

It just perhaps, a romantic name for the smoothing view.

& L, this is for you.
