Magni

Norse - Son of Thor and Iarnsaxa. Brother of Modi. When Thor killed the giant Hrungnir, he was struck by a fragment of flint from the giant's club and fell to the ground where he was pinned helpless by one of the giant's legs. Magni, said to be only three days (or years) old at that time, easily moved the leg and freed his father who gave him the giant's horse, Gullfaxi, as a reward. He and Modi both survived Ragnarok. Sometimes referred to as Magni, Magne, Magne, 'strength', 'strength' or Nerio.
