Ving-Þórr ek heiti,
ek hefi víða ratað,
sonr em ek Síðgrana;
að ósátt minni
skaltu það ið unga man hafa
ok það gjaforð geta.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Ving-Thor I’m called; I’ve journeyed far and wide—
I’m the son of Sidgrani;*
not with my consent will you gain that young woman
and get a bridal agreement.’
