Hildr

Gods - Valkyries

The word valkyrie derives from the old Norse valkyrja (plural valkyrjur), which is composed of two words; the noun valr (which refers to the dead in battle) and the verb kjósa (meaning "to choose"). Together, they mean "choosing the dead." The old Norse valkyrja is a cognate of the old English wælcyrge. Other terms for valkyries include óskmey (old Norse "desired servant"), appear in the poem Oddrúnargrátr and Óðins meyjar (old Norse "servant of Odin"), appears in Nafnaþulur. Óskmey may be related to the name of Odin Óski (Old Norse, meaning approx. "Ombudsman's wish"), referring to the fact that Odin hosted dead warriors in Valhalla.

The original valkyries were Brunhilda ("battle correspondent"), Sigrun ("rune of victory"), Skogul ("battle"), Prour ("power"), Herfjotur ("war fetter"), Raogrior god "), Gunnr (" battle lance "), Skuld (" that which transforms "), Sigrdrifa (" storm of victory "), Svava, Hrist (" the agitator "), Skeggjold "), Hildr (" battle "), Hlokk (" battle crash "), Goll (" battle cry "), Randgrior (" peace shield "), Reginleif that causes tumult ") and Gondul (" enchanted wand "or" werewolf ").

Hildr, in Norse mythology, is a Valkyrie. Hildr is attested in Edda in prose of Snorri Sturluson as Höggi Hedin of daughter and wife in the legend of Hedin and Högni. She had the power to resuscitate the dead in battles and used her to maintain the eternal battle between Hedin and Högni.

Hildr is also mentioned along with other valkyries in Völuspá, Darraðarljóð and other Old Scandinavian poems. In Old Scandinavian, wordhildr is a common noun which means "battle" and it is not clear whether the poets had it in mind as a personification of the battle, for there are sources in which they mention it in such a way, Hildr is the daughter of Odin and Freya.
