A mermaid is a mythological aquatic creature with a female human head and torso and the tail of a fish. Mermaids have a broad representation in folklore, literature, and popular culture.The word is a compound of mere, the Old English word for “sea”, and maid, a woman. Mermaids sometimes sing to people and gods and enchant them, distracting them from their work and causing them to die.
