"Fullness." A minor Norse goddess, listed among the Ásynjur by Snorri Sturluson in Gylfaginning:
The fifth is Fulla: she also is a maid, and goes with loose tresses and a golden band about her head; she bears the ashen coffer of Frigg, and has charge over her footgear, and knows her secret counsel.
The introductory prose to the eddic poem Grímnismál simply names Fulla as one of Frigg's servants. She is sent to king Geirröðr to warn him that a trollman was coming to do him harm, thus he is tricked into giving Odin an inhospitable welcome. In Skáldskaparmál Fulla is one of the eight goddesses present at the banquet held in honor of Ægir. In the story of Baldr's death, Baldr's wife Nanna sent a golden finger-ring to her from Hel.
A kenning for Frigg is Mistress of Fulla. A kenning for gold is Snood of Fulla, according to a tenth-century skaldic verse by Eyvindr skáldaspillir, and quoted by Snorri in Skáldskaparmál:
- Fulla's shining Fillet,
- The forehead's sun at rising,
- Shone on the swelling shield-hill
- For skalds all Hakon's life-days.
The Second Merseburg Charm (c. 900) mentions a Volla and makes her Frigg's sister, her long golden hair representing the golden grain.
