Syrinx was a nymph in Greek mythology, who followed the goddess Artemis. The god Pan tried to seduce her, so she asked some river nymphs to help her escape. As a result, she was transformed into reeds that made a horrible sound when Pan would blow across them. Pan took the reeds, cut them in appropriate lengths and turned them into pan pipes, which were named syrinx since then.
