The Etain of Irish mythology was a beautiful fairy turned into a fly (or in some versions, a butterfly), by a jealous queen. The insect Etain fell into a glass of milk and was swallowed by yet another queen, then reborn as a beautiful maiden. The name Etain not only survives but is popular in modern Ireland. With the transatlantic success of Aiden, which is resembles, we wonder if Etain doesn't have a future in the U.S.
