    Brainstorm time!: Word names for a swan

    What are some word names you would associate with a swan?

    I'm asking this because I'm helping out a friend with her art project (we are building a swan maiden statue out of wires, recycled material etc) to display at our local library. There will be a sign that accompanies it explaining the swan maiden myth, plus the name of our swan maiden.

    So far we have thought of:
    Winsome
    Feather
    Lady
    Wave

    What would you suggest?
    Ingrid | Kit | Susanna | Alistair

    In the Völundarkviða, Wayland Smith (Völundr) and his brothers marry valkyries who dress in swan skins. His wife was named Hervör-Alvitr.

    variations of Cygnini - swans scientific tribe

    since most swan maidens are forced into marriages and had rather sad lives i think of:

    Forlorn & Lament

    Swans are beautiful, graceful and majestic - while in the water. Out of the water they waddle like ducks and look more comical. Swans always make me think of ballet (ballerina Anna Pavlova as the Dying Swan, Swan Lake)

    I think of these words when I see a swan glide by...

    Sublime
    Grace
    Radiance
    Illumination/Luminous
    Glow
    Resplendence/Splendour
    All the best,
    Mischa.
