PERCHTA
[noun]
also known as Berchta (English: Bertha) or Percht amongst other variations; previously known as a goddess in Southern Germanic paganism in the Alpine countries. Her name means “the bright one” (Old High German beraht, bereht, from Proto-Germanic *brehtaz) and is potentially related to the name Berchtentag, meaning the feast of the Epiphany.
Initially Perchta was considered a minor benevolent deity, however her reputation mutated to that of an enchanted creature (spirit or elf). She was then later personified as a sorceress or witch with a malevolent character.
