Undines (Latin: Unda — a wave), also called ondines, are elementals, enumerated as the water elementals in works of alchemy by Paracelsus.   They also appear in European folklore as fairy-like creatures; the name may be used interchangeably with those of other water spirits. 
The German folktale of Ondine, a water nymph who curses her unfaithful  husband to cease breathing if he should ever fall asleep again, is the  basis for “Ondine’s Curse,” the historical term for congenital central hypoventilation syndrome.
