No closest i come is Norse in ancestry, but i liked the goddess akka mythology, i thought it an appropriate image to conjure up for a crow, both with Yambe-Akka godess of the underworld, and with Akka wife of Ukko being female side of nature. we had named our fist rehabbed crow ukko as well(we thought she was a he turned out to be wrong)

Ah, I only thought that you'd picked up the words straight from the Finnish Language. (Especially when I found out that some of the pics were taken in BC. We had relatives there, in Sointula village - where their parents had emigrated in the early 1900s.) :)

I've always had soft spot for Canada...

We here have only grey hooded crows.
