Sága – Scandinavian Goddess of History. Sága resides in the Sokkyabek, a large hall located under a river, whose walls flow with mead. A Goddess of tales and myths, She would drink heavily from her walls and transcribe the important events of the day so that none would be forgotten. She is the patroness of seers and writers, and She records the history of the world as well as events to come. Known throughout Norse and Germanic societies, scrolls and mead are sacred to Her.

So Saga is a Goddess — i had no idea that is where the word “saga” came from. It’s like how Sin is the Ancient Babylonian Moon God and Mensa (as in menstruation) is the Goddess of Measurement. There are thousands of other examples like this, of how the ancient deities are still woven into our very language.
