Sigilyph appears to have been inspired by the Nazca Lines, specifically the avian figures, and kachina dolls. Like Sigilyph, the Nazca Lines are found in a desert. It also resembles a wind chime.

Sigilyph is a combination of sigil and glyph. It may also draw its name from "sylph", which was a spirit of the air according to folklore.
