No they arent relatives, just really nice.  Here are some of the winds, good luck naming them. Aeolos was the main wind god in Greek Myth. There is an Aeolos street named after him today in downtown Athens.

Lets guess who climbed all the way up there with a hammer to destroy the winds faces! Was it Satan or 'The Christian zealots', The Muslims or the maybe the Buddhists?
I vote for the Christian zealots!
