Naamah or Na'amah (Hebrew: נעמה‎) is a demonic legendary creature, the mother of divination. How she became a demon is unclear.

EtymologyEdit

Naamah comes from Hebrew: נעם‎ naim and means pleasant.

The meaning of her name is argued among Hebrew scholars; it refers either to her virtuous nature ("pleasing" to God (YHVH)) or to a penchant for idolatry (singing "pleasant" songs to pagan idols).

In the ZoharEdit

Naamah appears in the Zohar as one of the four jinn of sacred prostitution, the mates of Samael. Her fellow succubi are Lilith, Eisheth Zenunim, and Agrat Bat Mahlat. She, along with Lilith, causes epilepsy in children. They are the original four queens of the demons. According to Zohar she is a succubus, and is generally regarded as an aspect or relation of Lilith. After Cain killed Abel, Adam separated from Eve for 130 years. During this time, two female spirits, Lilith and Naamah would visit Adam and bear his children, who became the Plagues of Mankind. (Zohar 3:76b-77a)

Also according to Zohar, Naamah corrupted Aza and Azael. (Zohar: Genesis: Chapter XXXII
