Founder recognition Edit
I think it is worth noting that, unlike all the other Vorta, Eris is the only one that doesn't immediately recognize and yield to Odo as a founder. 18.104.22.168 02:52, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Recently, it has also become the official name of Sol's third dwarf planet.
Eris is the name of the ancient Greek goddess of strife and discord, who, in anger at being denied a place at the wedding of Thetis, threw a golden apple among the chief goddesses. This set them arguing amongst themselves as to who was the most beautiful, which ultimately led to the Trojan War. Eris's role in the episode is analogous to a "golden apple"; an agent sent into the Alpha Quadrant to sow strife and discord.
