  • Maca Goddess

    sometimes to Sea Queen (Woodfield 156-173, Daimler 75-92).Though Morrigan is used at times seemingly as a personal name most sources agree this name is used interchangeably among a triplicity of sisters that are sometimes referenced as the “Three Morrigans.” Over time and throughout different myths the identity of these three change however The Lebor Gabála Érenn2 states, “Ernmas had three daughters, Badb and Macha and Morrigu, whose name was Anand.” The same text tells us,“Delbaeth … has three daughters, the famous war-furies Badb, Macha, and Mórrígu, the latter sometimes called Anand or Danand3” This gives us their paternal parentage as one of the kings of the Gods and maternal parentage as a goddess “she-farmer” and sorceress of the Tuatha de Danann. Macha is present in nearly every incarnation of the trinity, as is Morrigu (under one of her names) but Badb is often substituted with Nemain. Woodfield gives further insight, explaining that like The Morrigan, Badb is also used as a personal name and title for the battle-furies. Since it is also said that Badb and Nemain shared a husband and Badb is recognized as a title, this may explain why the lines that separate these two have become blurred. (1736) The next step is to explore the different roles the goddesses play through their characteristic and domains.
