  • Asgard is the reign of the Æsir, the principal race of Norse gods. Is difficult to access due to its huge walls, though after the war with the Vanir, they were destroyed, being vulnerable to attack of the giants. To rebuild the defensive wall, the Æsir hired the services of a giant who agreed to repair the walls in a very short time, and the Gods accepted, influenced by Loki. He cheated them, saying that he would give back the walls toAsgard in exchange for the Sun, the Moon, and the goddess Freyja.
    Asgard is connected to Midgard (the realm of men) by Bifrost (also called Asbru), the rainbow bridge, guarded by the god Heimdall. Each god has a different home in Asgard. The best known is Valhalla, the abode of Odin. Heroes killed in action are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries. Mythologhy says a faster way to go to Valhalla is die hanged, as Odin did. [Let’s not do that.]
  • Vanaheim is the world of the Vanir, the other race of Norse dieties, who usually were the responsible of the fertility functions. The Vanes (Vanir) were faced with the Aces (Aesir), but eventually reconciled, they came to live in a relative peace. It can suppose that Vanaheim, like the Vanir themselves, is somewhat more wild or “natural,” and less “cultural,” than the world of the Vanir’s Aesir counterparts, or even than the humanity. It’s a sort of nature world, free of technology or modern influences.
    *Alfheim is the world of elves, governed by the god Freyr. The elves have not an important relevance in the Norse legends, although the ancient sagas identify two types of elves that live in Alfheim: ljósálfar (or light elves) and svartálfar (or dark elves that live inside the mountains)
  • Midgard ( Miðgarðr in old Norse ) is the world of men created by the gods Odin and his brothers, Vili and Ve after battle with the primeval giant Ymir .
    After the battle, Odin and his brothers Vili and Ve took the body of the giant Ymir and took him to the great abyss to begin creating an habitable world. Thus, with his skin, they created the lands, with his blood and sweat, the oceans, with his bones the rocks and mountains, with his hair the vegetation and with his teeth the cliffs, where also placed the giant’s eyebrows to make the borders of the sea. To complete the work, the Gods thought to close this world with the cranial vault of the defeated, ordering to four dwarves to hold it. These were called Nordri , Sudri, Austri and Vestri and symbolized the four cardinal points. By placing the vault of heaven with the skull of the vanquished giant, his brains were scattered through the air, giving life to the clouds.
    However, this new territory was still dark, so the gods decided to go Muspelheim to steal the shining sparks of a sword called Surtr . With the two largest they created the sun and the moon and the other stars.
    Once the gods finished his work, they just added the winter and summer ,being ready to receive the first humans.
  • Svartálfaheim ( connected with Nidavellir -dark - fields ) This underground world is placed between the lowest sphere of  Midgard and the highest sphere of Helheim,. There lived the dark elves, (referring black to the hair and not the skin) called svartálfar,  and the Norse dwarves or dvergar, being the counterpart of the light elves .
    They’re associated with stones, the underground, death, luck, magic and technology, especially forging. The dark elves reside in the underground and are ancestral spirits that protect people, but they can also be threatening, especially when they are treated rudely . The Svartalfar try to avoid the light, though they can go outside without problems. They’re great architects , intelligent and industrious, and among other wonders, created the Mjolnir hammer of Thor, Odin ‘s spear Gungnir, the magic ring Draupnir, and the ship Skíðblaðnir, the Brisingamen necklace of Freyja and Freyr’s golden boar .
  • Jotunheim is the land of the frozen giants. The giants are usually enemies of the gods, but they had also children with them. It is ruled by Thrym, the king of the frost giants. In Jotunheim, where also live rock giants, it’s placed the strength of Utgard. From there, they threaten Midgard’s humans and the gods of Asgard, of which they are separated by the river Iving.
  • Niflheim is the world of the dead. I’ts a gloomy kingdom where go the men who have not had a glorious death. There inhabits the dragon Níðhöggr, constantly gnawing the roots of perennial ash Yggdrasil. After Ragnarök, the dragon will be devoted to torment the souls left in the world.
    In one of the creation myths, Niflheim is the cold matter, the opposite of Muspelheim or hot matter. This world was born of the clash of these in the magical space called Ginnungagap.
    One of the most dark and gloomy parts of the vast and icy Niflheim is Helheim, where lives  the giant queen or goddess Hela, in company of her dog Garm. The belief that when Ragnarok comes, the doomsday battle, Loki and the giants will come in a boat built with the nails of the dead from Hel, creating with this the habit of clipping the nails of the dead to delay these events.
  • Muspelheim is the world of the fire giants, enemies of the gods. It’s a kingdom full of flames located in the southern hemisphere. It’s governed by Surt, the king and the most powerful of the fire giants. In Norse mythology, the creation starts cof the contact between fire and ice in the huge initial vacuum known as Ginnungagap, creating then the water. The brightest objects in the night sky such as planets, comets and stars, emerged from Muspelheim sparks.
    In Ragnarok, the heavens will open and Surt will leave Muspelheim, followed  by all giants, marching  to Asgard and destroying the Bifrost bridge at their passing.
  • Hel or Helheim, is known as the kingdom of death and is in the deepest, dark and dreary part of Niflheim, one of the nine worlds of Yggdrasil. In the nordic mythology, it was ruled by Hela, the daughter of Loki, and the entrance was guarded by a huge dog known as Garm. Helheim and Niflheim are often associated as the same world, but this is not so: Niflheim is the realm of cold, ice and darkness mainly, and, although there it’s also common the death and destruction, Helheim is specifically the ”Capital of Death”.
    In this world will end those who died by disease or old age, and once they entered there , not even gods could get out  because of the endless, inexhaustible and impassable presence of the river Gjöll around this dark reign.

@spirithighway

God of: Thunder; summer storms; fertility; agriculture; healing; war; protection; hallowing; traveling. Richard Perkins theorizes that he may have been a god of wind and sailing.

Appearance (note: with the exception of red hair, this is all UPG):…

It comes from Thorpe’s Northern Mythology. He talks about folk traditions in Gotland, and says that the people believed that it was sacred to Thor, and if you found the beetle (called Thorbagge) lying on it’s back, and flipped it over, you “expiate seven sins.”

The linked list there are actually heiti (alternative names) rather than kennings proper. Kennings always bring in something else as a referent. The kennings listed on the Skáldic Poetry Project (maybe not exhaustive) are:

  • djúphugaðr, ramr, gegn, gagnsæll faðir Magna ‘the deep-minded, mighty, reliable, victory-blessed father of Magni ’
  • sundrkljúfr níu hǫfða Þrívalda ‘cleaver asunder of the nine heads of Þrívaldi <giant>,’
  • sonr Aldafǫðrs ‘the son of mankind’s father ’
  • arfa Viðris ‘of Viðrir’s <= Óðinn’s> heir ’
  • Œgir Ǫflugbarða ‘The terrifier of Ǫflugbarði <giant> ’
  • haussprengi Hrungnis ‘the skull-splitter of Hrungnir <giant>.’
  • fangboða flotna forns Litar ‘of the wrestling-challenger of the followers of ancient Litr <giant>.’
  • Rúni Sifjar ‘The confidant of Sif <goddess> ’
  • Faðir Þrúðar ‘The father of Þrúðr <goddess> ’
  • mágs Ulls ‘of the kinsman of Ullr <god>’
  • dolgs mellu ‘of the enemy of the giantess.’
  • dolgs jǫtna ‘of the enemy of the giants; ’
  • gramr Bilskirnis ‘the ruler of Bilskirnir <mythical hall>, ’
  • sonr Jarðar ‘the son of Jǫrð <giantess> ’
  • váða orms ‘of the serpent’s harmer; ’
  • dólgs mellu ‘of the giantess’s enemy ’
  • ǫndótts vinar banda ‘of the frightening friend of the gods ’
  • reyni folka leggs fróns ‘the tester of the people of the bone of the earth ’
  • Njótr hafra ‘The user of the goats ’
  • Fullǫflugr fellir fjall-Gauts ‘The most powerful killer of the mountain-Gautr’
  • Víðgymnir vaðs Vimrar ‘The Víðgymnir <giant> of the ford of the Vimur <river> ’
  • ótti jǫtna ‘the terror of giants ’
  • Sunr Jarðar ‘The son of Jǫrð <giantess> ’
  • blóða Meila ‘of the brother of Meili ’
  • mági Ullar ‘the kinsman of Ullr <god>, ’
  • hofregin hógreiðar ‘the temple-deity of the comfortable chariot ’
  • Of barmi Baldrs ‘The brother of Baldr ’
  • hǫrðum of rúna trolls trjónu. ‘the hard friend of the troll of the muzzle.’
  • Fjǫrspillir bǫlverðungar Belja ‘The life-destroyer of the evil-causing troop of Beli <giant> ’
  • brjótr berg-Dana ‘the breaker of rock-Danes ’
  • sveini Grundar ‘the boy of Grund <= Jǫrð> ’
  • burar Óðins ‘of the son of Óðinn, ’
  • reiði-Týs sára ‘of the bearing-Týr <god> of wounds. ’

Note that these are all in the grammatical case in which they appear in the poems they come from. It’s a little frustrating but kind of cool that some of these refer to myths that we know absolutely nothing about otherwise.

The link also includes a list of place names and attributions for all the above kennings, with links to the verses themselves (most do not have translations). Note: the definition it gives at the top of the page is ‘Thor; giant, ogre, monster.’ The reason for this is that there is a runic inscription (or two?) with the word þurs carved in it, and it’s impossible to tell whether it means Þórs or þurs. Because the database is tracking the word it has to include that.

Also, the Richard Perkins book is excellent.
