Geri and Freki

Geri and Freki are Odin's two wolves in Valhalla, according to the eddic poem Grímnismál. Odin receives the same fare as the einherjar, but he gives it to the wolves, because he does not need food; wine is both food and drink to him:

Geri and Freki
the war-wont sates,
the triumphant sire of hosts;
but on wine only
the famed in arms,
Odin, ever lives.

Both their names mean "Ravenous one."
