"Vanir-home." The home of the Vanir, the fertility gods of Norse mythology. It is attested in Vafþrúðnismál, where the giant Vafþrúðnir says that it is the place where Njörðr was raised, before he was sent to the Æsir as hostage, and where he will return after the destruction of the world.

Vanaheimr is generally assumed to be one of the nine worlds of Norse cosmology.
