A mermaid is a mythological aquatic creature with a female human head, arms, and torso and the tail of a fish. Mermaids are represented in the folklore, literature and popular culture of many countries worldwide. A male version of a mermaid is known as a "merman" and in general both males and females are known as "merfolk" or "merpeople". A "merboy" is a young merman.

Solomon Islands: The Adaro were malevolent merman-like sea spirits found in the mythology of the Solomon Islands. Said to arise from the wicked part of a person's spirit, an adaro is described as a man with gills behind his ears, tail fins for feet, a horn like a shark's dorsal fin, and a swordfish or sawfish-like spear growing out of his head.

Full Silicone Mermaid Merman Tails ($2,730) ❤ liked on Polyvore featuring accessories

A sea god, probably Phorkys, carries a Nereid Nymphe across the sea. The red-skinned god is depicted as a merman, with coiling fish-tail and lobster-claw "feet" and horns. His arms and chest are decorated with spines. He holds a box (of salt?) in one hand and a flaming torch in the other, and is draped with a wreath of seaweed (?). The goddess riding on his back may be one of the Nereides or, perhaps his sea goddess wife Keto.
