DRYAD

[noun]

1. tree nymphs in Greek mythology. In Greek, drys signifies “oak”, from an Indo-European root *derew(o)- “tree” or “wood”, thus dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general.

2. a deity or nymph of the woods.

[Séverine Pineaux]
