In Irish mythology , Nemain (modern spelling: Nemhain ) is the fairy spirit of the frenzied havoc of war, and possibly an aspect of the Morrígan .
In Irish mythology , the Badb ( Old Irish , pronounced [ˈbaðβ] ) or Badhbh ( Modern Irish , pronounced [ˈbəiv] )—meaning " crow "—was a war goddess who took the form of a crow, and was thus sometimes known as Badb Catha ("battle crow").
The Morrígan ("phantom queen") or Mórrígan ("great queen"), also written as Morrígu or in the plural as Morrígna , and spelt Morríghan or Mór-ríoghain in Modern Irish , is a figure from Irish mythology who appears to have been considered a goddess , although she is not explicitly referred to as such in the texts. The Morrígan is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors, and in the Ulster cycle she also takes the form of an eel, a wolf and a cow.
