Wights are those living things that English would call animals. Below is a set of lists showing the different wights and their names in Anglish. They are organized by the larger group to which they belong, such as birds and fish. Not all wights are listed below, but the list holds both those whose existing name is Anglish, and those whose name needs to be overset.
