Why Kuu Otava?
I got asked this question once, and imagine that it'll come up. Why Kuu Otava? It started with a name search, and I was struck by the history of it. So here it is.. Why my name here is Kuu Otava.
Kuu is a Moon God formed from the white of duck eggs that had been laid in the crook of the knee of Ilmatar, the Goddess of Air. She had been floating in an ocean for 700 years, and Kuu was born when the eggs rolled into the sea. Kuu is known to be Silver.
Otava is an old name for 'Salmon Net' in finnish, and is also a name for bear. Bear was said to originate from the Big Dipper, also called Otava.
