Jotunheim (I dunno how to do umlauts, but it should be a u after the t rather than an e) is actually the name of the whole realms of the Jotnar, or giants, notMessage 1 of 2 , Jun 15, 2010View SourceJotunheim (I dunno how to do umlauts, but it should be a u after the t rather than an e) is actually the name of the whole realms of the Jotnar, or giants, not just a town. This kind of input is what you get for letting Heathens hang out with you on occasion!FWIW, I kinda like Hnitbjorg.Kvasir's Blood, btw, is a common kenning for the mead itself, and sounds kinda cool. Kvasir was a being created from the mingled spittle of the two tribes of gods to seal the truce after their war in early days! He was killed by dwarves, who turned his blood into the meand of inspiration (Odhroehrir)!Dan

Greetings unto Ketelblastr:
Well, the weekend with Moraig certainly opened our eyes and minds to many a new thing, one of the most important being our group name and why it may not pass the college of Heralds. AS such, I have been doing a little research and I have come up with a few ideas.
1: Hnitbjörg = this is the name I have found for the mountain where the mead was held.
2:Jötenheim = this is the name for the town by the mountain where the mead was held, where the giant whom took it from the dwarves lived.
If you wish to read the story I have read, here is the link.
Yours in Service
