Greenlandic arrusaq (aarrusaq) = 'small pelagic marine gastropod (clione limicina)' which is gelatinous and transparent, and shaped like little angels, having flapping "wings", hence their name in English: sea angels.

Arrusaq sometimes functioned as helping spirits for shamans in traditional society, varying in size from that of a hand to the size of a human. The name might have a connection to ataarpiaq = 'real harp seal' [2] [3]
