Vindr heitir með mönnum
en váfuðr með goðum,
kalla gneggjuð, ginnregin,
æpi jötnar,
álfar dynfara,
kalla íhelju hviðuð.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Wind it’s called by men, the waverer by the gods,
the mighty Powers say whinnier,
whooper the giants, din-journeyer the elves,
in hell they call it guster.’
