Yakuza and Bacchus

I played Yakuza Zero, it being my first Yakuza game and there’s a character called Bacchus who is a dude that trains you how to fight. Now my girlfriend is playing Yakuza Kiwami, a remake of the first and there’s a bar called Bacchus… and I’ll be honest here this is the first time I’ve seen the name Bacchus even though now I am aware it’s a Roman God, it’s still weird to me that the series has two different things that use the same name and as far as I have been able to tell there isn’t any connection between the two and AM I JUST GOING INSANE HERE BECAUSE THERE HAS TO BE A CONNECTION, LIKE DID BACCHUS LATER GO ON TO OPEN UP THE BAR??? THERE’S PAINTINGS ON THE WALL THAT KINDA RESEMBLE THE CHARACTER FROM YAKUZA ZERO. DID THEY DECIDE TO TAKE THE PAINTINGS FROM KIWAMI AND CREATE A CHARACTER FOR ZERO?
