One thought on “Morveren

  1. A few inaccuracies:
    1) It’s spelt Morvoren
    2) It’s pronounced mor-VOR-un
    3) The word/name translated from Cornish means ‘sea maid’ or ‘mermaid’
    3) The Cornish legend gives no name to the mermaid. She is commonly identified with Senara, but calling her ‘Morvoren’ is a recent occurance.
