Okay 6. Janus...January starts the year (abbreviated Jan) and the rest is -us.

(I'll play more later, there are more clues than I can catch up with at the moment.)

Edit: just noticed there was already a second page! Okay, I definitely don't have time to play this now. Good game...I'll return to this one tonight.

Oh, and #6 has been answered, but the clue giver hasn't confirmed if the answer is 'correct' (myself, I would have said, as a clue 'anti-Epimetheus')

I hope #11 is a real PF username. The best I can do is :

ra = Egyptian sun god
mon = monday : starts the week (according to many)
m = meter, a distance

ramonm is a real PF member with 1 post about a year ago

BEF?

I wouldn't worry too much about the Sheffield band bit. Concentrate on the 14-28m/s bit.
