"Shine." According to Snorri Sturluson in Gylfaginning, the husband of Sól, the daughter of Mundilfari, before she was placed in the sky. Snorri quotes the following verse by the eleventh-century Icelandic poet Skúli Þórsteinsson in Skáldskaparmál:

Glenr's god-blithe Bed-Mate wadeth
Into the Goddess's mansion
With rays; then the good light cometh
Of gray-sarked Máni downward.

A kenning for the sun is Wife of Glenr.
