In Celtic mythology, the Morrigan is a goddess known as the Great Queen. She appeared in triple form (Macha, Nemainn and Badb) as a war goddess, and also had a great lust for men. Her regular appearance was that of a battle-crow. The first element of the name may derive from mór meaning "great" in Celtic languages, or it may be connected to an indo-European root meaning "monstrous." The second element in the name comes from rígan, meaning "queen" in Celtic languages.
