Scorpions Loreli, The Story

. The name Lorelei is a girl’s name of German origin meaning “alluring, temptress”.

This name is composed of two elements: From the Old German “lureln” (murmuring) plus the Celtic term “ley” (rock). In turn, the name means “murmur rock, murmuring rock, luring rock”. Lorelei is a feminine given name taken from the name of a rocky headland on the Rhine River. Legends say that a maiden named the Lorelei lives on the rock and lures fishermen to their death with her song. Lorelei is also the name of a feminine water spirit, similar to mermaids or Rhinemaidens, associated with this rock in popular folklore and in works of music, art, and literature. The name-day is celebrated on November 1, the Feast of All Saints.
