She is a warrior goddess, like Maha and Morrigan. Although the warrior goddesses themselves do not take part in battles, they often show their power and protection, for example, instilling fear in the army of one of the parties.
The name Nemain means "fіerce"; the goddess was famous for sowing panic among the warriors, she was the frenzied chaos of war. In addition to her terrifying functions, she as a goddes also stands for (sexual) ecstasy and the fertility associated with it. It is not a quiet figure but passionate through and through in everything that she does and evokes.
She is the tribal goddess of the Nemeters (a tribe that lived in the area on the Rhine between the Palatinate and Lake Constance before Romanization). She is therefore also a protective goddes of the sanctuaries. In the Alps, a group of goddesses called nemetials was worshiped for a very long time. The holy places that the Celts always found in the forest were under their protection. Hence the forest as such and the abundant water in Nemetia are sacred to her. She is associated with thermal waters and fertility rites.
The root relationship between her name and the СеІtic word for ecstasy ("nemаіn") suggests that she was worshiped with the sexual magic rites that were frequent at this time. In the popular religion of Europe, ritual sexual intercourse between priest and priestess was the act in which the sexual energy established the connection to the divine forces and through which, among other things, the farmland was blessed to be fertile. In contrast to Christianity, which is hostile to pleasure, sexual pleasure was accorded the meaning of sacred power.
She is complex: Ecstasy can be experienced in sexuality, but it can just as easily be translated as "war frenzy". On the one hand, fighting ability and on the other hand, artistry and healing powers are assigned to it. She is the mother of mourning and lamentation, in her sign are the howling ecstasies of sorrow and lamentation. These very often have a very cleansing and healing effect.
This applies both to the bereaved as well as to the departed, who can orientate themselves through these complaints and are purified. The goddes guides the spirits of the dead to their final home for this ritual lament. Nemaіn belongs together with Morrigan and Badb to a goddess trіad.
