Greek gods were on Olympus.

On the top of my head, I can also name some more, like the Muses and Ganymede, but, are there other people who lived on Mount Olympus?

  • Off the top of my head, the Horai (as they guarded the gates of Olympus).

When you think of Olympus, your mind usually goes straight to the big twelve: Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hermes, and either Hestia or Dionysus.

However there are Minor residents as well. Ganymede and the Horae are indeed found on Mount Olympus, as well as many others (see here for a list). They aren't technically counted as "Olympians" but they reside on Mount Olympus.
