I was always under the impression that she was more Germanic than Celtic, although I have seen her pop up at a few Celtic festivals and such. Shrug.

There is no hard cultural border between germanic and celtic, but more of an intermingling zone between them. Also, germanic tribes took on some of celtic culture.

Especially along the Rhine and at the coast of the Northsea culture mixed or even took unique forms. And of course many gods and goddesses were worshipped only locally.


In my home area for example the cult of the matronae or threemothers was common.
