‘Faun’ and ‘fawn’

FawnThis post is an excuse to use a cute photo. The delightful creatures you see when walking your dog are fawns; the mythological creatures you read about are fauns.

Fawn

  • a deer aged under one year
  • (of a deer) to produce young
  • a pale brown colour
  • to give a display of insincere or exaggerated flattery
  • to try to please someone by a show of extreme friendliness or affection

Faun

  • a being that is part human and part goat (usually in Roman mythology)
