Lilith has been demonized since medieval times, with Jewish folklore portraying her as Adam's rejected first wife, who was turned into a hideous night demon for refusing to obey him. So, in spite of its gently pleasant sound, Lilith has for the most part been rarely heard outside of reruns of Cheers and Frasier.
But that could be changing, in part due to Lilith Fair, the all-female traveling music festival organized by Canadian singer Sarah McLaughlin, which has raised millions for women's charities.
Yet Lilith's demonic aura has followed her through popular culture in various fantasy novels including George MacDonald's 1895 Lilith, comics such as Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, TV shows like True Blood, comics, anime, and numerous video games.
