noun: deep longing for something, especially one's home

about hiraeth

Hiraeth is a fansite dedicated to the crack pairing Sasuke Uchiha & Hinata Hyuuga from the Naruto series by Masashi Kishimoto. It was originally an attempted project to create a website resembling fanlistings from the early 2000s and was initially hosted on FC2 webs in 2020. In 2022 Hiraeth was revamped and moved to my neocities page. You are currently viewing Version 2.


Hiraeth is a Welsh word that has no direct English translation. The University of Wales, Lampeter, likens it to a homesickness tinged with grief and sadness over the lost or departed, especially in the context of Wales and Welsh culture. It is a mixture of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness or an earnest desire for the Wales of the past.1

Google defines hiraeth as a deep longing for something, especially one's home.
