Vína heitir enn,
önnur Vegsvinn,
þriðja Þjóðnuma,
Nyt ok Nöt,
Nönn ok Hrönn,
Slíð ok Hríð,
Sylgr ok Ylgr,
Víð ok Ván,
Vönd ok Strönd,
Gjöll ok Leiftr,
þær falla gumnum nær
er falla til heljar heðan.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Vina is one’s name, another Vegsvinn,
a third Thiodnuma,
Nyt and Not, Nonn and Hronn,
Slid and Hrid, Sylg and Ylg,
Vid and Van, Vond and Strond,
Gioll and Leipt, they fall close to men,
and flow down from here to hell.)
