Mermaid is an aquatic creature that exists in folklore and children’s cartoons. They are mythical creatures which have an upper body of a human and a lower body of a fish. Mermaids have appeared in the folklore of multiple cultures across the world. One of the first stories about them appeared in ancient Assyria. In this story, the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid over the shame of accidentally killing her human lover. In some cultures, mermaids have been associated with disasters like storm, floods, drownings, and shipwrecks. While in some others they are associated with benevolence, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.
Many of the attributes that are popular now have been influenced by the Greek Mythology. Historical accounts of these aquatic beings may have been inspired by manatees.
