The word for 'Discords' is Atas, plural form of the goddess of discord, Até. Eris is the mother of Até and also the goddess of discord, a title she earned by avenging the failure to invite her to the marriage of Peleus and Thetis by throwing into the midst of the guests the golden apple marked 'for the most beautiful', a gesture which led to the judgement of Paris and the Trojan war.
