HATI One of the names given to the terrible wolf that pursued the chariot of the Moon across the heav-ens and devoured it at ragnarok, the end of the world see Sun and Moon, under creation. This wolf is also known as managarm. The 13th-century Icelandic historian snorri sturlusan wrote that Hati is the son of Hrodvitnisson. Both names mean famous wolf, which has led some experts to suggest that Hati, or Managarm, is the offspring of fenrir, the monster wolf, himself son of the god loki. The exist-ing manuscripts of the Norse age are unclear on the exact name of the wolf that chases the Moon. Hati is also the name of a giant who appears as a character in Icelandic poems.
