The Allfather

The Allfather

One of Odin’s countless pseudonym is “Allfather” (Old Norse Alfaðir), he is the father of all of the gods. He’s simultaneously an Aesir god, a Vanir god, and a giant (his mother is Bestla, one of the first frost-giants). One Old Norse poem even identifies him with önd, the breath of life. Odin is the primal animating force that permeates all life.
The Name

The Name

Odin’s name can be translated as “Master of Ecstasy.” His Old Norse name, Óðinn, is formed from two parts: first, the noun óðr, “ecstasy, fury, inspiration,” and the suffix -inn, the masculine definite article, which, when added to the end of another word like this, means something like “the master of” or “a perfect example of.”
