Nausicaa

In Greek mythology, Nausicaa was a daughter of King Alcinous and Queen Arete of Scheria. She found the shipwrecked Odysseus and brought him to her father, who treated him well.


The name was also used by Japanese writer, illustrator, and filmmaker Miyazaki Hayao for the main character of his graphic novel (manga) and film Nausicaš of the Valley of Wind.
