Aegina (proper noun)
A figure of Greek mythology: Aegina was the nymph of the island that is named after her, "Aegina", which is in the Saronic Gulf between Attica and the Peloponnesos of Greece.

Although the name Aegina hints at a goat-nymph, such as was Cretan Amalthea, she was given a mainland identity as the daughter of the river-god Asopus and the nymph Metope.
