That’s an interesting question. Merpeople are thought of as half fish, half human.
If mermaids were fish, a group of them would be called a school.
If they were classed as humans, they’d be called a tribe.
But perhaps they’re sea mammals, similar to dolphins, where a group of them are called pods.
Manatees are, after all, what sailors once mistook as mermaids. As such it would make sense to call them similar to a group of manatees – an aggregation.
But if they were Australian, they’d be dugongs. And so, a group of a dugongs is called a herd.
So, what do you think a group of Merpeople are called?
Let’s count your votes.
