In Kalevala, the Finnish national epic, Ilmatar was a virgin Personification of Air.  Her Father was Sky, Her Mother was Primal Waters. Her name literally means "female air spirit."      In Kalevala, Ilmatar is portrayed as androgynous with both male and female aspects, though she is primarily female. She was impregnated by the sea and wind and thus became the mother of Väinämöinen, the Finnish Creator of Life.
