Greip

Norse - Daughter of Geirrod by Ran, some say. Sister of Gialp. Second wife of Ivald, some say. When Thor visited her father, she and her sister Gialp crawled under Thor's chair and tried to crush him against the ceiling. Thor, using the staff given to him by Grid, forced the chair down against them and crushed them both to death. She was one of the nine wavemaidens said simultaneously to have produced Heimdall, fathered by Odin. Others say that she was the mother of Fenia and Menia. Also commonly identified as Greip.
