About This Quiz

The myths of these sexy and mysterious half-human, half-fish women have been seen in some form in almost every culture in the world. Today, they have been seen on the big screen, in novels, and even as the logo for a coffee brand. They appear in folklore in just about every culture that's got a seacoast in one form or another.

There are many tales about these aquatic creatures, some good and some which tell a darker tale, but regardless of what the truth is, they always speak about the beauty of these sirens as well as their song which seduces the strongest of men.

For decades, authors, filmmakers and musicians have been bringing these creatures to life, many of which can be seen in movies like Splash, Aquamarine, The Little Mermaid, Ponyo, Pan, Lady in the Water and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
