Huh, I didn't know that mermaid is literally "daughter of the sea" in Hebrew.

Only in the children's versions, the real translation is בתולת ים which means "Virgin of the sea".

There is also a coastal city in Israel called בת ים. I always found its name poetic!

לא הייתי ממליץ ללמוד עברית משיר שמופיע בו הביטוי השגוי "ברי מזל". הריבוי של "בר מזל" הוא "בני מזל".

"בתוך הים" = "inside the sea"

"מתחת לים" = "under the sea"
