Called so in the Royal Ballet productions, but this fairy was originally know as Candide

and is also called The Tender Fairy  or Fairy of Tenderness in ballet productions around the world. This fairy can also be known as the gift she bestows on the baby Aurora, Fairy of Purity. Same Fairy just different names!
