 Hrjótr: hrjóðr B
 Hrjótr: Or Hrjóðr (B). The LaufE mss have (normalised) Hrjótr. Neither of these Óðinn-names occurs in other sources. Falk (1924, 18) adopts the variant Hrjótr, which he derives either from the strong verb hrjóta in the sense ‘growl, rumble’ or ‘fall, fly, be flung’ with the notion of shaking or violence (CVC: hrjóta). Hrjóðr, lit. ‘coverer’ or ‘streamer, strewer’ (adopted in Skj B and Skald) is also attested as a heiti for ‘heaven’ (Þul Himins I l. 13, Þul Himins II l. 6) and for ‘sun’ (Þul Sólar l. 3).
