Herculean

The word came to me in the night

This is where the dictionary says the word comes from:

Things that take great strength — like throwing a boulder or finishing math homework — are sometimes called herculean in honor of the Greek god Hercules. Just like Thursday comes from the Scandinavian god Thor, the god Hercules gave us this word.
