Another name for Váli, the son of Odin and Rindr, according to Snorri Sturluson in Gylfaginning, although in the Nafnaþulur both Áli and Váli are mentioned as Odin's sons. In Skáldskaparmál Loki is periphrased as Father of Áli, but this probably refers to his son Váli.
In the poem Kálfsvísa, partially preserved in Skáldskaparmál, Áli is the name a legendary Norwegian king who was slain by Aðils at the battle on the ice of Lake Vänern. The name is also found in list of sea-kings in the Nafnaþulur.
- Gylfaginning, 30.
