"Frost-Gerd." The daughter of the jötunn Hati, attested in Helgakviða Hjörvarðssonar. She engages Helgi Hjörvarðsson and his companion Atli Indmundsson in a heated contest of flyting after Helgi had slain her father. She also boasts to be responsible for the deaths of the sons of a certain Hlövarð. They trade insults throughout the night and in the morning she is turned into stone:
- It is now day, Hrimgerd!
- and Atli has thee detained
- to thy loss of life.
- A ludicrous haven-mark
- 'twill, indeed, be,
- where thou a stone-image standest.
The name appears in the list of troll-wives in the Nafnaþulur section of Skáldskaparmál.
