Comments for ANNIS:

In Scottish folklore, the Black Annis was a demon (possibly fallen pagan goddess) who was rather like a Baba Yaga.

"She took the form of a one eyed wizened crone, immensely strong with sharp tearing teeth, long black claws and a blue face. She was said to hide in a giant oak, long since felled, that was once the remnants of a great forest, which covered the area. From this lofty perch she would leap out and eviscerate unwary travellers."

A very pretty name. But I'm afraid a child would be called Anus. Pity!
