↳ water nymphs (naiads, nereids & oceanids)
Naiads (Ναϊάδες) was the collective name for the nymphs that presided over bodies of fresh water (such as fountains, rivers, brooks, springs, etc.). A naiad was closely connected to their body of water: if the water dried up, the naiad perished.
Nereids (Νηρειδες), the fifty daughters of the titan Nereus and oceanid Doris, were considered the nymphs of the seas, especially the Mediterranean. They were depicted as beautiful young women who were patrons of sailors and fishermen.
Oceanids (Ὠκεανίδες) were the three thousand daughters of the titans Okeanos and Thetys, their realm the open ocean. Hesios names figures such as Kalypso, Klymene, and Dione, among others, as some of these nymphs.
