CELTIC ROCK BAND NAME EXPLAINED: 'SELKIE' ....
A SELKIE WAS SAID TO SING AND AWAKEN OTHER SELIKIES TO SING Selkie Folk Songs.
IN CHRIST WE ARE ALL SUPERNATURAL BEINGS! Who we truly are is yet to be revealed. We are created in God's image just as Adam & Eve.
As a bit of whimsy I chose the name Selike to denote the Scottish Celtic sound of my music and the tradition of Scottish Celtic Gatherings for Christian Worship. Also, Selkies in folklore were known for their beautiful singing voices.
DEFINITION FROM THE SCOTS LANGUAGE DICTIONARY is as follows:
(1) Selkie folk, the seal people, an imaginary race inhabiting the sea, to outward appearance seals, but capable of being transformed into human beings, a common theme in Shetland. and Orkney Island's. folklore; (2) silkie man, one of the above, a kind of merman; (4) selkie-wife, a mermaid (Sh. 1969).
In Shetland folk-lore the Finns meaning Selkies could be both men or women. They were supposed to possess a skin or White garment like the covering of a Selkie. . . . In old times there was an aversion to and superstitious dread of killing a Selkie lest it should be a metamorphic Finn.
