This trope goes back to [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]] with Creator/{{Hesiod}}'s ''Literature/{{Theogony}}'', and even further to the Mesopotamian creation story ''Literature/EnumaElish''. [[IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] Music/TheOffspring or OffingTheMouth. OutlivingOnesOffspring is when the child dies for reasons that are not the parent's fault.
