The name of a female jötunn. She is possibly one of the mothers of Heimdallr who, according to Snorri Sturluson in Gylfaginning 27, was the son of nine maids, all sisters. She is mentioned in Völuspá hin skamma, or Völuspá the Less:

There was one born,
in times of old,
with wondrous might endowed,
of origin divine:
nine Jotun maids
gave birth
to the gracious god,
at the world's margin.
Gialp gave him birth,
Greip gave him birth,
Eistla gave him birth,
and Angeia;
Ulfrun gave him birth,
and Eyrgiafa,
Imd and Atla, and Jarnsaxa.
The boy was nourished
with the strength of earth,
with the ice-cold sea,
and with Son's blood.
