"Shaggy." A jötunn mentioned in the eddic poem Helgakviða Hjörvarðssonar. The hero Helgi Hjörvarðsson threatens the giantess Hrímgerðr to have her wed to the obviously repulsive Loðinn:

Lodin is named he who shall thee possess,
thou to mankind art loathsome.
In Tholley dwells that Thurs,
that dog-wise Jötun,
of all rock-dwellers the worst:
he is a fitting man for thee.



  • Helgakviða Hjörvarðssonar, 25.
