the dictionary of norse mythology


FJORGYN 2 FJORGYNN The father of the goddess frigg, according to the works of Icelandic poet snorri sturluson. According to modern experts in the Old norse language, the similarity between the feminine form of this word, which was the name of a giantess see fjorgyn 1, and mascu-line form is a result of transliteration, the methods of using the alphabet of one language to replicate the sounds of another language. In Old Norse spelling, there are distinctions between the names for the mother of thor and the father of Frigg that are not evident in modern English.
