Arrow The Origins.......

After reading through some Vampire websites,I noticed a bit of interest in the origins of vampires.

In it I saw two rather common theories:

1) That Lilith (who only shows up in commentary on the Tannach, and not in the Books of Moses themselves) became the mother of all vampires after she dumped Adam and left Paradise.

2) That vampirism was the form of the mark left upon Cain because of the first fratricide (widly popularized by White Wolf).

But I have heard other theories.

One of them is that "Vampire" is actually a highly bastardised form of "Valkyrie", the Choosers of the Slain of Norse myth, who flew over the battlefield determining who should die a bloody death, and who would live to see another battle. Of course, from the Norse perspective, it was an honor to be chosen by a Valkyrie, but as Christianity moved into the Scandanavian countries, these psychopomps were changed from demigods to demonesses who lived on the blood of battle and gained long life through unnatural means.

However, I am always curious... What other theories have people heard about the origin of vampires? Do you know?
