such a shame people do not know folklore...

Ancient tales suggest that dragons were actually fish before going through metamorphosis. In Japanese mythology Koi fish became dragons once they climbed a mountain river all the way to the top. Same is in the Finnish mythology (But the fish was a Salmon instead).

Finnish is an ancient language by its roots. Mikael Agricola, and others after him, have had their part in the development. Still the finnish language contains words that are ancient and alien to a person who does not understand.
