Nymph - minor female nature deity - personifications of nature

A nymph in ancient Greek folklore is a minor female nature deity. Different from Greek goddesses, nymphs are generally regarded as personifications of nature, are typically tied to a specific place or landform, and are usually depicted as beautiful maidens.
.
The definition of a nymph is a mythical spirit or goddess, or a beautiful young woman. A mythical female spirit who lives in the mountains is an example of a nymph.
.
In some ancient tales, nymphs pursued young men and would not take “no” for an answer. Some nymphs were downright dangerous. ... Nymphs attracted by his beauty lured Hylas away and abducted him. In another story, a young Sicilian herdsman named Daphnis pledged his loyalty to a nymph.
.
Often wrshipped in grottoes and natural shrines, Nymphs personify the fertile and creative powers of nature, such as the life-giving flow of fresh-water springs.
