A naiad is a type of female spirit, or nymph, in Greek mythology, who presides over fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of fresh water.

Naiads are often beautiful, lighthearted, and beneficent, and they are associated with various local cults and rituals.

Naiads can be dangerous or jealous if they are offended or spurned by humans.

For example, the naiads kidnapped Hylas, a companion of Heracles, because they were fascinated by his beauty.

Another naiad, Salmacis, raped and fused with Hermaphroditus, the son of Hermes and Aphrodite, when he tried to escape from her.

Naiads can also bless or protect humans who respect them and their waters.

For instance, the naiad Arethusa was turned into a spring by Artemis to escape from the river god Alpheus, and she later became a source of fresh water for the city of Syracuse.

Naiads are one of the many classes of nymphs in Greek mythology, who are minor deities of nature.

Naiads can be further classified into various types according to the type of water they inhabit, such as crinaeae (fountains), pegaeae (springs), eleionomae (marshes), limnades (lakes), and potamides (rivers).

What does a Naiad look like?

Naiad in a body of water with a sun shining above her head and trees in the background
Naiad in a body of water with long hair and a body of water behind her is a rocky landscape
Naiad in a costume with a fish on her shoulder
A naiad is a lovely nymph of water
Who lives in springs and streams and lakes and rivers
She has a human form, but fairer, brighter
With flowing hair and eyes that shine like silver

She loves to swim and dance and sing and play
With other naiads and the fish and frogs
She cares for plants and animals that stay
Within her watery realm of mists and fogs

But do not cross a naiad or offend her
By polluting or destroying her domain
For she can be quite vengeful and unfriendly
And make you drown or suffer endless pain

So if you see a naiad, be respectful
And admire her beauty from afar
Or better yet, just leave her undisturbed
And let her be the guardian of her star.
