75 Magical Fairy Names for Girls (with Meanings)

If you’re looking to name your little one after magical fairies but want more options than Tinkerbell, here are the top fairy names and fa names for girls!

Updated: January 26, 2022

Fairies are delicate, magical, and a little naughty. A fairy name could be perfect for your little girl. 

A fairy is a tiny, winged, mythological creature that originated in the Northern parts of Europe during the pagan times. Many fairy stories come from Ireland and England, but we also see them in the folklore of France, Germany, and the Slavic states.

Fairies are commonly portrayed as spirits of nature, since the pagan cultures that created them were centered around nature and the elements. Although today we most often associate fairies with good beings, sometimes with a streak of innocent naughtiness, it wasn’t alway like that. Long ago, fairies were blamed for all sorts of misfortune, such as sickness or a poor crop yield. In Ireland, where the majority of fairy folklore comes from, the four leaf clover, which today is known as a good luck symbol, was used to ward off fairies. 

In more recent times, fairies are seen in a more favorable light. Cicely Mary Barker created beautiful images of nature fairies for each season to accompany delightful poems for children. Everyone loves the pixie Tinkerbell in Peter Pan, even though she is a bit naughty and has a jealous streak. Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream also features friendly yet trouble-making fairies.

Because stories about fairies were used to explain natural phenomena, giving your little girl a fairy name is a great way to show your love for nature and the world’s elements, like the sun and the sea.

So, you fancy yourself or your baby as a bit of a fairy, huh? Maybe you relate to woodland sprites. Or maybe you just understand Tinker Bell on a deeper level than most Disney fans. Whatever your reason for loving fairies, know that you’re not alone. People all over the world are obsessed with fairy life. There are actually whole sections of children’s bookstores devoted to the tiny winged creatures. There’s just something so magical and precious about the myth and lore behind fairies. And, OK, maybe a little creepy, too. Did you know the Irish believed that fairies would come in at night and “steal” the breaths of babes? That wasn’t the only less than happy rumor about fairies, either. Multiple cultures and religions have folklores that center around mischievous and often mean fairy-like creatures.

Either way, if your little one is giving you serious mystical vibes, a fairy name might be suited for them. Children and the entire process of having a little one can be absolutely magical. So why not give your kiddo a name with just as much whimsy and playfulness? Fairy names have a certain lightness and fancy to them and aren’t just for your little girls. If you’re looking for a short name or one that will stick out in your kids’ class, you’ve come to the right place.

The idea of fairies has been around for centuries, and they typically represent all that is sweet and whimsical in the world. Although they sometimes mess around with the fates of humans, they tend to teeter on the side of love, magic, springtime, and new beginnings. Sure, in some cultures they can also represent death, sexual depravity, abduction, and immorality. But let’s be real: Which magical creature doesn’t get a bad wrap sometimes? It’s nice to know fairies are complicated since, hey, so are people. Fairies just happen to have a human and magical side.

Depending on where you get your fairy lore, you probably have a certain idea of names that work for fairies. If you’re particularly interested in the world of Tinker Bell, you know that sometimes fairies in that realm have fairly normal names that just sound a little, well, magical. Or, oftentimes, their name relates to the “job.” (Tinker Bell, for instance, “tinkers” and invents things.) If you’ve always fancied those delicate, watercolor “Flower Fairies,” you probably believe that most fairies have names found in nature: Irish, Peony, Sweet Pear, etc.

Speaking of Tinker Bell, did you know her look was based on the actress Margaret Kerry? Disney wanted a live reference for their design. And although Margaret isn’t a real fairy, (or is she?) people have claimed to come in contact with these magical beings for centuries. The earliest case was in 1907, where a man and his wife claimed to have caught a fairy and kept it for two weeks. According to folklore, fairies can be incredibly small or they can be as big a child. They weren’t always believed to have wings but magic that gave them the gift of flight.

Then, of course, the 2000s brought us a whole new version of fairies tied to literature — especially young adult fiction. In those worlds, we found names like Holly (Artemis Fowl) or Magnus (Laurell K. Hamilton). Even the Bard himself, William Shakespeare, had fairies in his work: Oberon, Puck (Robin Goodfellow), and Titania. Since many fairy stories are based in the United Kingdom (Ireland predominantly), nearly any name of Cornish, Welsh, or Celtic heritage might spring to mind the image of a fairy or pixie.

One final note of interest? Mythically, fairies often have green eyes. So if your little one comes out with a celadon pair of their own, it might be a sign to gift them with a magical name.

These names are our absolute favorite options for fairy names for your babes.

Top 10 Fairy Names

Top 10 Fairy Names

Home> Fairy Stories> Top 10 Fairy Names

By: Steven Forsyth

As we mentioned in the Are Fairies Real? article, fairies are a type of creature typically associated with European folklore (although tales of them are global). Whether or not you believe in the existence of these fantastic beings, there is no doubt that it remains a significant part of our culture. Who knows, you could have a Fairy name and not even realise it!

1 — Aoife

Aoife was the second wife of the King of Lir and the sister of Eva, the King’s first wife. Eva had four children with the king but died soon after having her fourth child. The lonely Lir wanted a mother figure for his three boys, and one girl and Aoife fitted the bill. Legend has it that Aoife possessed magical powers.

Aoife condemned the Children of Lir to live as swans for 900 years across just three locations.

Although she enjoyed life with the king and children at first, she soon grew jealous of the attention Lir bestowed on the kids. One day, when she went to a nearby lake with the children, she used her magic to transform the kids into swans. The children were condemned to live as swans for 900 years with equal time spent at Lake Derravaragh, the Straits of Moyle and the Isle of Inish Glora. The curse could only be ended when the swans heard the ringing of a bell; this would signify the arrival of Saint Patrick in Ireland.

However, the swans could still talk, so they sang beautiful songs to tell their father what happened. Lir arrived at Lake Derravaragh and spoke to Fionnuala who confirmed that Aoife was a witch who had placed the curse on them. The king was incandescent with rage and banished Aoife into mist; she was never seen again.

2 – Angus

Angus mac Og (also spelled Aengus or Aenghus) was one of the Tuatha de Danann and was the Celtic god of youth and beauty. He is often depicted as having a group of birds flying around his head. According to legend, Angus was the son of the Dagda and Boann, and he apparently lived near Newgrange close to the River Boyne.

Angus’ parents were the Dagda and the river goddess Boann. The trouble was, Boann was the wife of Nechtan! The Dagda managed to hide the pregnancy by ensuring the sun stood still for the nine months from conception to birth. As a result, Angus was technically conceived, gestated and born in a single day!

3 – Bran

Also known as Bran the Blessed, he was the Celtic God of Health, the brother of Branwen, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, and the son of the Welsh Sea God Lyr. His name means ‘crow’ or ‘raven,’ and he appears in the Mabinogion, a collection of ancient Welsh stories. Bran was also a sea god and is described as being so large that no house was big enough to accommodate him.

In one story, the King of Ireland, Matholwch, married Branwen but subsequently treated her badly. The result was a war between Ireland and Britain, and eventually, Bran and his men killed the Irish King. However, Branwen was so devastated at the destruction that she dropped dead.

In another tale, Bran was approached by a beautiful woman who told him to search for a group of islands with no death, sorrow, evil or sickness. He completed the mission and found the Isle of Women. One of his friends lured him away, but when Bran discovered he was unknown back home, he left once again.

4 – Brighid/Brigit/Brigid

As you can see, there several different spellings for the name including the anglicised ‘Bridget.’ While it is common to associate the name with Saint Brigid of Kildare, it is also the name of one of the most famous goddesses in the Celtic pantheon. This ancient deity was a member of the Tuatha De Danann who ultimately became the Sidhe.

Brighid was also known as Brigid of the Flame, the element of fire and goddess of the sun.

Brighid was the Dagda’s daughter and oversaw healing, poetry, childbirth and smithcraft. She was also the Element of Fire and the goddess of the sun. There are some that suggest Brighid was actually the Great Mother and the Dagda was her son. According to legend, she was bathed in milk after birth and would only drink the purest milk from a fairy cow with red ears and white skin.

St. Brighid apparently died in 525 AD, but there are few verifiable records about her life, so most tales with the name ‘Brighid’ attached tend to be associated with the goddess. Her birth was celebrated by the Celts during the Imbolc festival at the start of February and even in the modern era, St. Brigid’s Day is celebrated on February 1.

5 — Dana

Dana is one of Irish Mythology’s greatest goddesses and was the female leader of the Tuatha De Danann. She is also known as ‘Danu’ or as ‘Don’ in Wales. The name means wisdom, knowledge, wealth, abundance, and teacher. Scholars are still in disagreement as to the etymology of the name since the name ‘Danu’ does not appear in medieval Irish texts. Indeed, the main mention of the name is within the term Tuatha De Danann which means Tribe of the Gods of Danu.

Lady Gregory refers to Dana when writing about the Tuatha De Danann in her 1904 work Gods and Fighting Men. In the book, Dana is depicted as having a level of power that goes far beyond that of the other queens. There is a suggestion that the name is a link to the Indian water goddess Danu.

In ancient mythology, there is also a suggestion that Dana acted as the Divine Ambassador to the Elemental Kingdoms. She provided the platform for interactions between the Fairy Folk and the Leprechauns.

6 – Diana

Diana was the goddess of the hunt, moon, and birth in Roman mythology. The name is aligned with the Latin words dius (daylight) and dium (sky). She is also associated with nature and in particular with wild animals, the forest, and the wilderness. Legend has it that she lived with the nymph Egeria in the Forest of Nemi. She is also identified with the goddess Artemis in Greek mythology.

Diana was the goddess of the hunt, moon, and birth in Roman mythology.

The figure of Diana is also of paramount importance in the field of witchcraft. According to Aradia: Gospel of the Witches, which was written in 1899, Diana was the spirit of the stars who created all men, dwarves, and giants. The grove of Diana Nemorensis on the shores of Lake Nemi near Rome was the most famous place of worship of the goddess.

7 — Diarmuid

Although he may not be classified as a fairy, Diarmuid Ua Duibhne’s powers were the epitome of supernatural! He was the son of Donn, the God of the Dead, and one of the most prominent members of the Fianna in the marvellous Fenian Cycle of Irish Mythology. According to legend, Aenghus Og, the God of Love, was Diarmuid’s protector and foster father.

When Aenghus gave Diarmuid his magical sword named Moralltach (the Great Fury), the already great warrior was almost invincible on the battlefield. His impressive array of weapons also included another sword called the Little Fury and two spears that caused wounds which could never be healed. In one battle, Diarmuid singlehandedly killed 3,400 men and helped save Fionn and the Fianna.

Diarmuid was an exceptionally handsome man and is legendary for his ‘love spot’. He received it from a young lady who he made love to. It turned out that she was the personification of youth and she placed the spot on his forehead; it made him irresistible to women. He was also the lover of Grainne, a woman who was supposed to marry Fionn. Eventually, Fionn forgave his one-time friend, but one day, Diarmuid was gored by a bull. Instead of using his power of healing, Fionn hesitated, and the delay led to the death of Diarmuid.

8 — Morgan

Morgan Le Fay, sometimes called Morgana, plays a pivotal role in the magical world of King Arthur and Camelot. It is important not to mix up this enchantress of Arthurian legend with Morrigan, the Celtic Goddess. However, some scholars believe there is a link between the two.

Morgan Le Fay, sometimes called Morgana, plays a pivotal role in the magical world of King Arthur and Camelot

Geoffrey of Monmouth is accredited with introducing the character of Morgan into literature with his book The Life of Merlin which he wrote in the 12th century. She uses her beauty and charm to lure men into dangerous situations. In Arthurian legend, she has affairs with Merlin and Accolon and is also in love with Sir Lancelot although the knight does not share these feelings.

It is perhaps her surname ‘Le Fay’ which is the most intriguing aspect of this sorceress. It comes from the French term la fee which means ‘the fairy.’ As a result, it is no surprise to learn that she possesses some of the traits associated with the supernatural female figures in Celtic Mythology.

9 — Oisin

One of the most famous tales in Irish folklore involves Oisin, the son of the legendary Fionn mac Cumhaill. Oisin’s mother was one of the fairy Sidhe people previously known as the Tuatha De Danann. One day, Oisin was hunting in the forest, and he was approached by a beautiful fairy woman known as Niamh of the Golden Hair.

Niamh chose Oisin as her lover and urged him to come to the land of Tír na nÓg. Oisin agreed and lived with Niamh in the land of eternal youth for 300 years. Although he was happy, Oisin yearned to return home, so Niamh gave him a magical horse to complete the journey. However, he could not let his feet touch the ground.

Niamh chose Oisin as her lover and urged him to come to the land of Tír na nÓg.

Upon his return to Ireland, Oisin was upset to learn that the men were physically far weaker than before. He was also surprised to find that the nation had converted to Christianity. While he was riding along the road, he noticed three men struggling to lift a rock. Oisin knew he could lift it easily, so he stopped to help. Alas, his saddle-girth slipped and caused his feet to touch the ground. Oisin became frail and blind instantly, and the horse vanished. Saint Patrick tried to convert him to Christianity, but Oisin remained Pagan as he didn’t want a life without women and feasting.

It is an interesting story insofar as it pitted the Pagan religion against Christianity and depicted Pagans as vibrant and powerful. Rather than being the Land of Eternal Youth, perhaps the Tír na nÓg Fairyland is a place for the dead. After all, once Oisin touched the earth, he aged instantly. There are many other stories of travellers to Fairyland turning to dust when they returned home; maybe this means they were dead all along?

10 — Rhiannon

The Celtic goddess Rhiannon is a pivotal figure in the Medieval Welsh story collection known as the Mabinogi. There is a possibility that she is based on an early Celtic deity who was one aspect of the Fairy Queen. She appears in the First and Third Branches of the Mabinogi.

In the First Branch, Rhiannon is pursued by Pwell, the prince of Dyfed. Eventually, he catches her and wins her heart. The couple gets married and have a son, but the child is stolen and discovered by the lord of Gwent-Is-Coed, Teyrnon. He and his wife raise the son as their own but are astonished when he grows at an incredible rate. Teyrnon eventually sees the resemblance between the boy and Pwell and returns him to his rightful home.

Rhiannon is also renowned for riding between the world of humans and the fairy kingdom on her white horse. If she touches your heart, it will be filled with inspiration and love. However, tales of Rhiannon also show that she is not always tender and motherly. She is quite ruthless when she needs to be.

Final Words

There are potentially hundreds of names with their roots in folklore so if your name isn’t on the list, don’t worry! Whether you are an avid reader of mythology, a believer in magical creatures such as fairies, or prefer to avoid the entire niche altogether, there is no question that folklore has left an indelible mark on the history of literature. After all, it’s hard to beat a good story!

The Greek Gods. Pluto and Proserpine are sometimes king and queen of the fairies, and Diana, goddess of the moon, is sometimes the fairy queen. One source calls Mercury the prince of the fairies. Neptune has also popped up a few times.

Grumedan: a fairy in the fairytale «Narcissus and Potentilla»

Gwyn ap Nudd, Welsh god of the Underworld, was later called the king of the Tylwyth Teg. This seems similar to the Roman gods Pluto and Proserpina being used as the fairy king and queen prior to Oberon and Titania.

Iolanthe: a central character and fairy in Gilbert and Sullivan’s play of the same name. She was banished from Fairyland because she married a mortal.

Iubdan and Bebo: king and queen of the little people, the leprechauns or Luchra. ​Their names are also spelled

 Iubhdan ​(pronounced Uv-don) or Bé Bhó (pronounced Bay-voe).
In the Saga of Fergus mac Léti, King Fergus meets the «lúchorpáin,» or «little bodies.» These water sprites try to drag the sleeping king into the sea, but he wakes up and captures them, and will only let them go if they grant him wishes. They give him three wishes, including the ability to breathe underwater, but tell him never to swim in Loch Rudraige; he does so and this leads to his death. This is believed to be the first known reference to leprechauns.
​A later version appears  in the manuscript Egerton 1782, dating from c. 1517 and translated by Standish O’Grady in the Silva Gadelica. This is a a more involved and comical version that names the king and queen of the lúchorpáin​Upon first visiting court, the tiny monarchs fall into a bowl of porridge. Eventually, Iubdan gives Fergus a cauldron that can never be emptied, a harp that plays itself, and a pair of shoes that will let him travel freely through the water. However, again, this leads to Fergus’ death.

Joan the Wad: In the mid-19th century, Joan with the Wad or Joan of the Wad was given as the name of a Pisky from Cornwall. A wad is a kind of bundle or torch, making her the female equivalent of Jack o’ Lantern or Will o’ the Wisp. Around the 1930s, newspapers carried advertisements for good luck charms symbolizing Joan the Wad. «A Short History of Joan the Wad, Queen of the Lucky Cornish Piskies,» was leaflet of 28 pages, used to advertise these charms.

Kenna: daughter of Oberon in the poem “Kensington Garden,” by Thomas Tickell. Oberon threw out Kenna’s human lover Albion and arranged for her to marry the fairy prince Azuriel, but Albion waged war on Oberon’s kingdom. Azuriel killed him, but Albion’s ancestor Neptune destroyed the kingdom. All the fairies but Kenna fled. Kenna tried to revive Albion with juice from the herb moly, but instead the body became a snowdrop. Later, when Wise laid out the grounds for the Prince of Orange, Kenna gave him the plans through a dream and the resulting garden was named after her. The poem later inspired a comic opera.

Nymphidia: Trusted servant of Mab in the poem Nymphidia. While Puck aided Oberon, Nymphidia helped Mab by using magic and countering all of Puck’s tricks. This poem was formative in English fairy literature, parodying court life and further shrinking Shakespeare’s already-tiny fairies. The names would be used by other authors; Nymphidia was identified as the «mother of the maids» in Thomas Poole’s Parnassus.

Oberon: The king of fairies, also referred to as Auberon or Oboram. He may have originated from the character of Elberich, the Norse king of the dwarves. Oberon first appears in «Huon de Bourdeaux,» a thirteenth-century French romance during which Oberon is the king of the fairies, a handsome dwarf, the height of a three-year-old child, who mentors Huon and later makes him his successor. Ogier le Danois calls Oberon Morgan’s brother. In the legend of Ysaie the Sad, the hero is aided by an ugly dwarf named Tronc, the son of Morgan le Fey and Julius Caesar. The fairies reward Tronc with beauty and a throne, and he takes the name Oberon. In Spenser’s “The Faerie Queen,” his genealogy is a pastiche of the royal family of England, so he succeeded his brother Elferon and his daughter is Gloriana, a copy of Queen Elizabeth.
In The Faery Pastorall (c. 1600), his father’s name is Julius, although the author considered naming him Albion.

Oriel: In Kensington Garden, an Oriel wooed Kenna but later aided her sweetheart Albion in battle. In the masque The Fairy Favour, written for the Prince of Wales, Oriel was the beloved son of Oberon and Titania and the heir to their kingdom. He had gone missing, causing Oberon and Titania and the rest of their subjects to worry, but Puck tracked him down. In fact he took the guise of a human prince and will spend a while in the mortal realm, presumably as George IV (the play was written for the then-4-year-old Prince of Wales). The fairies all wish him a long and happy life in the mortal state before he returns to them. The real George IV was ultimately very unpopular for his debauched living.

Paribanou/Peri Banu: Arabic. A fairy bride from the story «The Story of Prince Ahmed and the Fairy Paribanou.” Peri is an Arabic word for fairy, and her name translates literally to Fairy Lady. She is a radiantly beautiful and wealthy woman, while her brother Schaibar or Shabbar is an incredibly strong dwarf. This story appeared in Antoine Galland’s version of the Arabian Nights, but was actually one of the oral tales he learned from the storyteller Hanna Dyab. It was not originally part of the One Thouand and One Nights. 
An identical Italian tale appears under the title “The Daughter of the Dwarf” in Gianni and the Ogre by Ruth Manning-Sanders (1971).

Paridamie: a fairy in the story «Princess Rosanella»

Patch and Pinch and Grim and Gull, Tib and Sib and Licke and Lull: These fairies are servants of Oberon whom Puck meets in The Life of Robin Goodfellow. Patch and Pinch and Grim and Gull are the brothers; Tib, Sib, Licke and Lull are their sisters.
Sib and Tib are the leaders of the female fairies. The female siblings of this family don’t go abroad every night as the men do, but occasionally they’ll make a trip together and warm and dress their children by human fires. They will leave money for the cleanly and organized, but further dirty the homes of the lazy. They live within a hill where they lend money to humans, but if a human fails to pay back the money, they are punished with pinches and bad luck. I’ve seen Sib compared to Sibillia, an Italian fairy sorceress and seer who lives in a mountain, where treasure is kept and the magic arts are taught. In the Middle Ages, Tibb was a stock name for a lower-class, sexually promiscuous woman, a character who often appeared in plays. Tibb’s Eve was originally a non-time, similar to silly phrases like the ‘twelfth of never’ and ‘when two Sundays fall together’ being others, but is now an actual thing in Newfoundland. Licke is a cook and Lull is a nursemaid. Patch monitors housewives and those who take care of animals, punishing the lazy by making them dirtier than ever. Patch or Pach was a common name for a court fool in Shakespeare’s time. Pinch’s name refers to the fairy habit of pinching lazy maidens black and blue. Grim is a herald of death and misfortune, who takes the form of a black dog — a frequent form for spirits of foreboding. Grim is a common name for fairies such as church grims, which toll church bells and appear at funerals. It could possibly be derived from Grimr, meaning masked or hooded one, who was the alter ego of Odin when he walked among mortals.  Gull (a word for tricking people) punishes slovenly servants, switches babies for changelings, steals food and mimics voices. In his role as Hagge or Nightmare, he also lies on people’s chests and induces nightmares.

Peallaidh: «Shaggy one.» A hairy, demonic creature that haunted streams. According to Scottish toponymist William J. Watson, Peallaidh was the king of the uruisgs in Breadalbane. An Urisk or Uraisg was a type of water fairy in the Scottish Highlands. Other urisks included Bruinidh an Easain, Bruinidh an Eilen, Padarlan, Cas-luath an Leitir, and Triubhas-dubh a Fartairchill. 
«Peallaidh an Spùit» (Peallaidh of the Spout), «Stochdail a’ Chùirt», and «Brùnaidh an Easain» (Brownie of the little waterfall) were names of Scottish brownies.

Puck: a mischievous spirit. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare combined two different folklore characters, Robin Goodfellow and Puck, to create Oberon’s manservant. In a 1628 ballad, he’s the son of Oberon by a mortal woman. It’s unclear which came first. 
He is a shapeshifter with a distinctive laughing cry of “ho, ho, ho,» who has been portrayed as a goblin, satyr, demon, or house-cleaning spirit similar to a brownie.

Saradine: a fairy in the fairytale «Featherhead»

Sybilla: A Sybil was associated with Monte Vettore, a mountain in the Apennines; according to Ortelius’ Cartographia Neerlandica (16th century), Sybilla lives inside a paradisical cave deep within the mountain. This was connected to the European folk motif of Venusberg, the mountain of Venus, in which a man is seduced into visiting the otherworld by a fairy queen. Antoine de la Sale’s La Salade (c. 1440) told the story of the sinful but alluring Queen Sibilla. This tale later became conflated with the German story of Tannhauser. In «Huon of Bordeaux,» Sybilla is a fairy queen under the emperor Oberon, and in Arthurian lore, Sebile showed up as an evil enchantress and companion of Morgan le Fey. 

Skillywidden: A faerie child captured by a farmer in Cornwall. The farmer’s family called the child Bobby Griglans; in Celtic Cornish dialect, griglans means heath, or an area of land full of heather and gorse. The fairy child’s parents eventually retrieved him.
Later writers Enys Tregarthen and Eileen Molony used the word “skillywidden” or “skillywiddon” as a term for young fairies in general.
Skillywadden Moor, Skillywadden Farm, and Skillywadden Barn are locations close by the setting of the story. They may have existed beforehand. The barn is now a holiday location where you can stay.

    Winx Club cartoon appeared on the screens 13 years ago, but still has not lost its popularity. The main characters of the animated series are ordinary, at first glance, girl-girlfriends. But these girls have a peculiarity — they turn into fairies and get into the most amazing stories! Today we will talk about the main characters of the Winx Club. You will find photos and names of fairies in our article. Have a nice adventure!

    In the center of the plot of the Winx Club is a fairy named Bloom. She is the founder of the Club! Bloom was born into the royal family in December, her homeland is the planet Domino. One day, three Ancient Witches attacked the planet. The elder sister of the fairy named Daphne, in order to save baby Bloom, sent her to Earth. Fireman Mike found the girl: he found her on fire, which, by the way, did not harm her. Since the girl did not have any relatives, Mike and his wife Vanessa adopted Bloom. The girl’s magical abilities opened up as soon as she was 16 years old — Bloom tried to save a girl named Stella. It was Stella who suggested that Bloom go to school for young fairies. At school, Bloom found three more friends, with whom she founded the Winx Club. The main goal of the Club is the protection of good.

    The Winx heroine named Bloom is generous and sincere, she is a true leader. In addition, Bloom can be called noble, independent and at the same time stubborn and impatient.

    The character «Winx» named Stella is one of the central characters. Stella was born in August on the planet Solaria. The little princess was considered not particularly beautiful, but the matured Stella took her appearance seriously, so she often won various beauty contests. From her parents, the girl inherited the power of the stars, the Sun and the Moon.

    Stella is cheerful and gentle. She is generous, sincere and funny. Sometimes a girl allows herself to be lazy. The authors of the animated series say that Stella can be called a little selfish. This fairy’s favorite pastime is shopping, and Stella’s wardrobe bears the title of the largest wardrobe in the entire universe!

    This name of the Winx Club heroine speaks for itself — a fairy was born on a planet called Linphea, where all magic is somehow connected with nature. One of the first members of the Club was born in March. At the very beginning of the animated series, shyness prevented Flora from communicating with other students at the school, but everything changed after meeting Bloom.

    Those who have watched the cartoon know that the fairy grows and cares for a wide variety of plants, which is why Flora’s entire room is lined with flowers. Flora is a diligent student, but she is absolutely not ambitious. She is totally dedicated to what she does. It is also important that she does not hesitate to rush to help those who need it. At the same time, the Winx Club fairy Flora is distinguished by prudence and wisdom. And Flora is patient and very sweet. Her only flaw is insecurity. It is because of this quality that it is difficult for a girl to go towards her goals.

    Among the main characters is the Winx Club fairy named Musa. Her home planet is Melody, and her parents are a great singer and professional pianist. It was from her parents that the girl inherited her love for music. The little girl was not even five years old when her mother died. At the same time, Musa’s father made a difficult decision — he left music forever, and forbade his daughter to develop natural musical talents. This caused a long quarrel. Once at a concert, Musa sang a song that her mother once sang. On the same day, she was finally able to improve relations with her father, who could no longer forbid her daughter to play music.

    Quite a lot is known about the character of the Muse. For example, the fact that she is energetic and ironic. In addition, this fairy has tremendous inner strength. The girl does not trust the people around her. The exception is her faithful friends. By the way, the creators of the cartoon assure: Muse is a real tomboy, prone to regular mood swings. The fairy’s favorite musical instrument is the flute.

    The Winx Club Fairy named Tecna hails from a planet called Zenith. Magic on this planet is inextricably linked with technology. Since childhood, Tecna has not let go of gadgets, the main of which is a pocket computer. Perhaps this is what allowed the fairy to become one of the best students of the magical school. Since Tecna is a technology fairy, she often invents extremely useful things. In addition, she is a real genius in drawing up detailed plans of action.

    To understand what she is — a Tecna fairy — just watch a couple of episodes of the Winx Club. It is immediately clear that this fairy is distinguished by accuracy and a rational approach to everything. Logic helps a girl find a way out of difficult situations. It may seem that Tecna is aloof and even cold towards others. This is not entirely true — next to loved ones, the fairy is always affectionate and open. Tekna has tender feelings not only for science, but also for sports. She doesn’t mind playing video games.

    The homeland of the Winx Club fairy named Layla is the water planet Andros. Due to the fact that the parents of little Leila were traveling almost all the time, the girl was often left alone, usually her days were spent studying the rules of etiquette. The girl had practically no friends. Leila’s only friend can be called a young dancer Ann. Most likely, it was thanks to Ann that Leila developed a real passion for dancing.

    This fairy was the last to join the Winx Club. The main qualities of Leila are pride, energy, readiness to face danger at any moment. Thanks to regular sports, Leila is in excellent physical shape.

    In addition to these fairies, there are others — Muse
    represents the planet Melody and Tecna
    — the planet Zenith

    Leila, Muse, Flora, Tekna, Stella, Bloom, and I know about them because I have two girls, and they love this cartoon very much.

    Trix Witches from left to right: Stormy, Icey, Darcy. Pepe the duckling is on Aisi’s shoulder (seventh episode of the first season «Friends in Trouble Are Known»)

    Appear as characters in the first episode of the first season «An Unexpected Event». The Trix are a group of antagonists in the animated series. They are known as «The Senior Witches» (Senior Witches, Senior Witches), or simply «Witches», in English. Their team consists of three witches — Icy, their leader, Darcy, and Stormy. For most of the first season, they attend the Cloud Tower Witch School. In the first season, the Trix stole the Dragonfire and called in the Army of Darkness to take over Magix. The Trix are the descendants of the three witches who destroyed Domino and created Valtor. At the beginning of the first season, the Trix appeared to be more powerful than the fairies (with the exception of Bloom), such as in the episode Spelled, where they had the opportunity to win if Bloom had not interfered. However, after they are defeated and lose the Dragon Fire, the Winx can easily defeat them. The Trix are sisters in the original, but not in the English dub.

    Aisi: A young witch depicted as having a «heart of ice». As the eldest and presumably the strongest of the sisters, she is the ruthless leader of the Trix and desires to rule the universe. The name suits her perfectly, describing her powers and main personality traits. She is cruel to be cruel, she does not approve of malicious ridicule of people. She attacks the victim with freezing beams and a snow storm. Icy hates the fairies from Alfea, mostly due to Professor Griffin’s mistake. The antics of the witch are mainly meant to invade Alfea and open a period of sorts, with curses and witchcraft. She can control monsters: ogres, minotaurs, trolls, Nightmare Gargoyles, as well as Creatures from the «Army of Decay» (army of darkness). She doesn’t have a boyfriend and doesn’t approve of Darcy dating Riven. … —>

    Darcy is a young witch best described as «Lady of the Dark». She is superb in her manners. Darcy is very smart, she is the first to get out of all quarrels, she is the last to feel sympathy for Valtor. The best of all witches understands technology. Loves purple. Once upon a time, Darcy really liked Riven, but he interfered with the Trix, and they put him in a dungeon. She is quiet and stubborn, but at the same time mean and deceitful. This is her advantage, because she splashes out her whole character on the enemy. She finds the enemy’s weak points and thereby disables him. Witch of illusions and darkness. She loves various dark, hypnotic pendants with which she hypnotizes guys. In the first season, he looks at Riven, flunks Bloom in the exam, pretends to be Stella in order to take the ring from the Winx. In the second season, he receives a glumix in the form of a long bracelet. With the help of a hypnotic pendant, he fails the exam with the Winx on the simulator. In the third season, he uses a spell that rescues the Trix from the dimension of punishment Griffin receives from Valtor disenchantix.

    Stormy is quick-tempered, emotional, because of these traits of her character there are (constant) quarrels with Aisi. Stormy is the first to confess her sympathy for Valtor, she is jealous of his sisters and Bloom. Stormy hates Musa for embarrassing her at the concert. She doesn’t like all the other fairies either. Witch of wind, bad weather, thunderstorms and storms. In the first season, she tracks down Bloom, disapproves of Darcy and Riven’s relationship. In the second season, he receives a gloomix from Darkar. There are several fights with the Muse. In the third season, Valtor uses a spell of opposites on her, and Stormy helps the Winx find Valtor. Because of this, she is offended by him, but Valtor finds a new source of strength and the witch again pays attention to him. Together with the sisters, he receives disenchantix.

    Darkar is one of the most evil mages in the Magic Dimension. He is the owner of the great power of the Dark Phoenix, with the help of which he can absorb and attract magical entities to himself and absorb their dark and light energy. It was Darkar who sent the Three Ancient Witches to destroy Bloom’s home. The Dark Lord frees Aisi, Darcy and Stormy from punishment and gives them generous gifts — gloomiks (they have the same purpose and properties as charmiks), which greatly strengthened Trix’s witchcraft. Evil witches began to help Darkar, using his power to take revenge on the Winx. Darkar’s main goal is to find the four pieces of the Code, which opens a portal that releases Relix, a magical entity whose power surpasses that of the Dragon’s fire. He decided to enchant Bloom, turning her into an evil fairy twice. Darkar imprisoned Professor Avalon, and sent a dark clone of the professor to Alfea, under the guise of a kind teacher of Magophilosophy, to control Bloom. When Bloom cast the dark spell of Darkar, Sky saved her from evil spells, convincing the fairy that he loves only her and no one else. With the help of the Charmix Convergence, the Winx managed to defeat Darkar. He first appears in the first episode of the second season, «Shadow of the Phoenix».

    Valtor was raised by three evil witches, Trix’s ancestors, from the Dragon’s fire. He used to be the most powerful magician along with Griffin, but she left for the Light Team. He dreams of regaining the title of the most powerful magician. The Light Team imprisoned Valtor in the Omega Dimension, where he spent 17 years before being found by the Trix. While Valtor was lucky, the witches liked him and this flattered his pride. After several lost battles, the Trix betray him and run away. Valtor destroyed a lot of planets, taking their essence. In one of the last battles, the Winx almost manage to defeat Valtor with the help of Water Stars and Magic Convergence. But the final victory of the Winx was in the last episode of the 3rd season, when Bloom used the spell «Fairy dust, destroy the fire.» First appears in the first episode of the third season, «Princess’s Ball».

    Notes of a pink kedik and my answer to her.

    Pink sneaker

    Winx it’s called redfontine! And yet why? Well, in the first season 4, the Winx were voiced by other actors, the original version of Tecna is Techna. So everything is correct in the magazine and you know why? Yes, because the Winx magazine at one time collaborated with the Rainboy company. then the comics were drawn there differently, unlike the external ones. Yes, and the same with Helio. By the way, Stella’s original name was Stera! I found out on the Rainboy website!0792 was supposed to be techno. The stere was taken from stereo! Although I think it refers to music!
    On the website of the Winx magazine, I found out that redfontine
    was made because the name red fountain did not please! Who knows, maybe in season 5 Tecna will be Tezhnaya

    I will make a reservation right away that I did not read magazines, but I saw several scans from small books on the Internet and the names there really were different.

    Let’s start from afar — with theory. In general, there are three main options for translating names: how it is written, how it is heard, or how it is translated. For example, the name of the Prince of Denmark (Hamlet) in the first version would be Hamlet, in the second — Hamlet, in the third — Village. However, the first two are usually more or less the same, so the translator can only choose between doing a direct translation or translating it (if the name is speaking).

    I’m sure that when Iginio Straffi and his team came up with the names for the Winx girls, they understood that Italian is not the most important language in the world, and they tried to make the names of girls and guys sound quite international and easy to pronounce by the majority that speaks or simply understands English. « Blooming
    » Bloom, « heavenly
    » Skye doesn’t cause any particular problems. But in Russian there was a problem with Tekna.

    In Italian and English, the words «technology» and «technix» (it’s a thankless task to write down the transcription in Russian letters, but we are now only interested in one letter) sound with the letter «k» in the middle. In Russian, these same words are pronounced with the letter «x». Since the name Tekna is derived from technology, it would be quite logical to make it Techno — it sounds more pleasant and understandable for a Russian person. And it’s easier to speak. But the translators who worked on the animated series did not. But in a completely similar case, they translated Magiks as Magiks, because in Russian there is a word magic
    but no word majia

    But besides the studio, which was ordered to dub the series, we also have the Egmond publishing house, which translates books. And there, you will laugh, the translators did exactly the opposite — Tekna was russified to Techna, but Magix was left as Magic.

    The situation with Leyla-Aisha is a bit more complicated. In the Italian film, where Layla is called Aisha, her name on Bloom’s phone is clogged as Layla.

    That is, this is the official adaptation of the name, approved by the Rainbow studio. Why the name Aisha did not suit, one can only guess. Perhaps it seemed that this word would be difficult to pronounce for the English-speaking population, and they decided to replace it with a more on-duty version of Leila … I don’t know. But it’s a fact.

    In general, the situation when the translation of the same cycle is done by different translators happens quite often. In this case, a list of proper names is compiled so that the names of places and characters sound the same in different translations. In our case, the dubbing studio and the publishing house are in no way connected with each other, so everyone came up with names as they pleased.

    But now the translation of the 4th season came out, and again there were some surprises. Bloom, who for three seasons was the princess of the planet Domino, suddenly came from the planet Sparks. That is, here already the same studio could not agree with itself.

    When copying this text, a fully or partially active link to — — is required! Otherwise it’s just theft.

    In the corner of my memory, I remember that someone from a northern European country, where the show of season 4 started a couple of months earlier than in Russia, also complained that Domino was changed to Sparks. So I can assume that the name of the planet was changed in the scripts sent out, that is, this change came from the Rainbow studio itself. Let me be corrected if I’m wrong, but before that the name of the planet Sparks was used in the American translation from 4kids, which was criticized a lot for gag, and even Straffi didn’t seem to be very happy with it. If all this is so, then the transition from Domino to Sparks is not clear to me. Well, in Russia, a new translator for season 4 probably appeared, and how would he know what was there in the first three seasons? So we got the renamed Bloom’s homeland.

    Another question I’m interested in is why do all the names of the villains have an accent on the last syllable? OGRON, GantlOs… after Italian it is unusual. Or was the translator a fan of the French and decided to remake them in the French manner?

    In general, let’s leave it all on the conscience of translators. We know that Helia, Helio, Helia, Helia are the same guy. And that Redfontein, that Fonterossa is still the same Red Fountain. And so we understand each other. 🙂 Even despite the quick fixes.

    — play here
