Sirens are creatures native to Kul Tiras. With their enchanting voices and songs, they lure sailors into shipwrecks to devour them. Intelligent enough to build small camps, they utilize their thralls as labor. Siren elders are known as "sisters". They are bigger, smarter, and stronger than younger sirens. Their voices carry far out to sea and bring in all the big "catches".

- The names of several sirens in Battle for Azeroth are derived from the names of the mythological Sirens: Ligeia (Lugeia), Molpe (Nolpe), Parthenope (Patheope), and Teles (Teres). Anthemusa is a reference to the name given to the island of the Sirens in some versions of the Greek myth.

Inaras seems to be an exception to this, as her name is most similar to the Hittite–Hurrian goddess Inara.
