The name of a jötunn who, according to the eddic poem Grímnismál, was deceived and killed by Odin. He is presumably Miðviðnir's son, who is mentioned in the same stanza:

Svidur and Svidrir
I was at Sökkmimir's called,
and beguiled that ancient Jötun,
when of Midvitnir's
renowned son
I was the sole destroyer.

Sviðurr and Sviðrir are other names of Odin. Sökkmimir is also mentioned in a stanza by Þjóðólfr of Hvinir in Ynglingatal, and is listed among the jötnar in the Nafnaþulur.
