Greek Naiad Alke Image
ALKE (pronounced AL-kee) is one of the Greek Naiades. The Naiades were generally thought to be daughters of an Okeanid mother (the 3000 daughters of Tethys and Okeanos, Goddesses of fresh water sources) and a Potamoi father (the 3000 sons of Tethys and Okeanos, Gods of the rivers); in Alke's case, her father was Saggarios, God of the River Saggarios in Phrygia. Naiades were particularly responsible for water that came up from the earth, such as springs, fountains, and wells. Alke's name, which means "strength," is also seen as ALCE.
