"Corpse-blue?" The name of a jötunn, but more probably an alternate name for Ymir, if the identification of Ymir with Brimir is allowed. According to Völuspa, the race of dwarfs was created from his legs:

Then sought the gods
their assembly-seats,
The holy ones,
and council held,
To find who should raise
the race of dwarfs
Out of Brimir's blood
and the legs of Bláin.
— Bellows trans.

The name Bláin is also found in the þulur as that of a dwarf.
