Maybe because they're real? (I like to imagine so). There are other creatures you can find stories of in many cultures, such as vampires
I'm currently reading Sarah Porter's Lost Voices trilogy so I'm very interested in mermaids. Anyone know of any good books on the general subject?

Apparently it started from the ancient Assyria, well because folklores were shared from culture to culture through trades between places long time ago. Silk road, to Europe etc..
