Why they called a company in Japan Olympus?
Here is the answer: Olympus Corporation founded 1919. Company name >

‎(Mount Takachiho is the name of the predecessor of Olympus Corporation.) The company selected the name “Olympus” as the trademark because Mount Olympus, like Mount Takachiho, was the home of gods and goddesses. This trademark also represents what Olympus says is their aspiration to illuminate the world with its optical devices, just like Takamagahara brought light to the world.

In Japanese mythology, eight million gods and goddesses live in Takamagahara, the peak of Mt. Takachiho.
