In Greek mythology, Ceto (/ˈsiːtoʊ/; Ancient Greek: Κητώ, romanized: Kētṓ, lit. 'sea monster') may refer to three divine women:

Ceto, a primordial sea goddess and daughter of Pontus (Sea) and Gaia (Earth).[1] She was the mother of the Phorcydes by her brother Phorcys.[2]
Ceto, a "naiad daughter of Oceanos" and thus one of the Oceanids. Her mother was probably the Titaness Tethys. Ceto bore Helios a daughter, Astris.[3]
Ceto, one of the 50 Nereids, sea nymph daughters of the "Old Man of the Sea" Nereus and the Oceanid Doris.[4]
