- Since Jordanes in his Gotica does not refer to him by his native name, but
calls him Mars Thingus we do not actually know if they had a name for him
which was similiar to Woden. And the noun Wode means to rage like go into
a frenzy. I had heard that their god was called Gautr. See Teutonic
Mythology by Jacob Grimm it covers Gothic names of the gods. Frauja etc..
