Njord (Niord) The Norse god of the sea and seafarers, and also a fertility god.  Njord was a Vanir god. He went to live in Asgard after the Aesir/Vanir War. He took with him his twin children, Frey and Freya, both fertility gods. In some tellings, Njord’s first wife and the mother of the twins was Nerthus, his sister. As the Aesir did not approve of marriage between brother and sister, Njord had to leave Nerthus behind. Njord’s second wife was Skadi, goddess and giantess of winter.

"Skaði á skíðum," by Icelandic painter Thrandur.  I like this painting except for a glaring omission: she needs some leggings!  A Norse goddess would NOT go bowhunting with bare legs...

Od (norrønt: Óðr) er en figur, der i nordisk mytologi forbindes med gudinden Freja.  I de islandske tekster Yngre Edda og Heimskringla, der blev skrevet af Snorre Sturlason i 13. århundrede, omtales Od som Frejas husbond og fader til hendes to døtre, Hnoss og Gersimi.   Der findes næsten ingen oplysninger om ham i kilderne, og der er derfor blevet fremlagt mange teorier om hans identitet; en meget udbredt hypotese gør ham til et aspekt af guden Odin.
