About This Quiz

Mermaids have appeared in multiple cultures, and their stories have fascinated humans for centuries. Sailors often brought back tales of mysterious swimming half-human, half-fish entities who appeared to them during storms or briefly popped up while they were trapped adrift in the doldrums. Sometimes, they tell of beautiful creatures who look like stunning women and sun themselves on the rocks, and other times, they mention scaly, fishy monsters who terrorize them at sea and clearly have nothing but wicked intentions.

Which sort of mermaid would you be? Would you be the sort that would help shipwrecked sailors by carrying them to safety? Would you take a message for a sailor marooned in the middle of the ocean? Would you merely stand by, refusing to interfere, as they float stuck in calm waters? Or would you actively sabotage these intruders of your watery domain, poking holes in their ships, nibbling through their ropes and warning your fellow marine dwellers about their nets, so that they always come in empty? 

Let's find out exactly what your mermaid name would be!
