Nair

September 17th, 2008 by sabrina

Nair (pronounced NAWR) is the Celtic Goddess of regicide. Each fall, the king was sacrificed (he died after having sex with Nair), ensuring the continued fertility of the land. One such king was named Crebhan, and legend records that Nair took him to the underworld and gave him many treasures. Nair’s name means “modesty” and is also seen as Nar.

    Thank you, Mrs. B. As a fellow pagan soccer mom, that means a lot.
