Stuff My Kid’s Fight About: Pegasus vs. Unicorn

Two of my daughter’s have been fighting about the same subject for quite awhile. Maybe a month but it could be more. The topic of this fight is whether a winged horse with a horn is a unicorn or whether it is a pegasus.
Does anyone else have children that argue about this topic?
Finally, tonight I remembered to look it up on the internet. I love you Internet because you may have saved us from the argument that never seems to end.
So here is what I found out. I want to share just in case anyone else is curious.
Pegasus is a specific winged horse in mythology. He is a character, like Medusa. Speaking of Medusa, she is also Pegasus’ mother. Crazy, huh? Some sources claim that when Perseus beheaded Medusa, Pegasus sprung from her neck. Who’s the daddy? Well, the father of Pegasus was Poseidon.
As far as I can tell, a winged unicorn is called an equalacorn, pegacorn, unipeg or an alicorn. The answer that my kids are looking for is “Yes, a winged horse can have a horn. It can be like Pegasus and a unicorn.”

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. I’ve always called winged unicorns unipegs. I did know about the birth of Pegasus, and wondered why your daughters would spend a month arguing about something that’s so easily looked up. ^_^

      1. Yes. Mommy kept forgetting or got busy. πŸ™‚ So today was the day that the deja vu kicked in and I was like “How long have we been talking about this?” A long time.
