Particularly, they may be derived of a myth in which he rescued two children, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hj%C3%BAki_and_Bil]][[note]]If the names sound familiar, it's probably because the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme is also derived from this myth[[/note]] from their [[AbusiveParents abusive father]], which send them outside at night get water from a well.
