Luʹtin

.

A sort of goblin in the mythology of Normandy, very similar to the house-spirits of Germany and Scandinavia. Sometimes it assumes the form of a horse ready equipped, and in this shape is called Le Cheval Bayard.

To lutin is to twist hair into elflocks. Sometimes these mischievous urchins so tangle the mane of a horse or head of a child that the hair must be cut off.

Le Prince Lutin, by the Countess DʹAulnoy.
