Ilona Selke’s first name means radiant and her family name can be traced to the Celtic myth about selkies, sea-dwelling mammals, usually a seal but sometimes a dolphin, capable of shape shifting into a human.  In one legend a selkie changes into a beautiful woman and has children with a man. Their children were able to see into the future and communicate telepathically with animals. One wonders then at Ilona’s own history and calling. In Australian aborigine mysticism it is believed that one is one’s name.  For Ilona Selke this certainly seems very close to the truth.
