From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ilmatar is a virgin spirit of the air.

Origins

Ilmatar is portrayed as androgynous with both male and female aspects, though she is primarily female. Though a virgin, she was impregnated by the sea and wind and thus became the mother of Väinämöinen.

The name Ilmatar is derived from the Finnish word ilma, meaning "air," and the suffix -tar, denoting a female spirit. Thus, her name literally means "female air spirit." In the Kalevala she was also occasionally called Luonnotar, which means "female spirit of nature" (Finnish luonto, "nature").
