Leprechaun Slime

Many scholars believe that the origin of the word leprechaun is the old Irish Lú Chorpain meaning small body.

Another definition has linked the modern name to luchorpán ( a word from the 8th century AD ) which is defined as sprite or pygmy.

Finally, the word leprechaun has been connected to leath bhrógan (shoe maker). This definition is also a possibility as many stories about leprechauns have shown their profession to be the cobblers of the fairy world.
