Bergelmir

Norse - A giant. Son of Thrudgelmir and progenitor of the race of Frost Giants. He and his wife were the only ones to survive the rush of blood from the body of Ymir when he was killed by Odin and his brothers, and they lived to start a new race of giants. In some stories he is Farbauti, father of Loki by Laufeia or Nal. In some accounts he was the son of Ymir rather than his grandson. At times, referred to as Bergelmir, Bergelmer, Bergelmer, Bergelmi, Bergelmi, Farbauti, Farbauti or Firbauti.
