Norse - A servant of Frey. When Frey fell in love with Gerda, Skirnir volunteered to woo her on his master's behalf in return for Frey's magic sword. Riding Bludog-hofi and carrying the sword, the magic ring Draupnir, some golden apples and a reflected image of Frey, he rode to Jotunheim and persuaded Gerda to marry his master. It was he who fetched the magic fetter Gelgia from the realm of the dwarfs to fasten the wolf Fenris to the rock. Sometimes identified as Skirnir.
Norse - In some accounts, a name for Svipdag. At times, referred to as Skirnir.
