Norse Mythology

The Mighty Gods of the Vikings...


Norse Wisdom Goddess

Goddess of Virtue and Self-control

One of Frigg’s attendants, she is heavily into self-discipline. And possibly also of producing a handkerchief when a nose needs wiping.

Her name may sound like nasal mucous, but it really means ‘wise’. It’s believed that she bestows self-control and prudence. So turn to Snotra if you need to stifle a sneeze.
