Hárr: Lit. ‘grey-haired one’. The name is given in A as ‘hø̨rr’ and as Hár ‘high’ in B and the LaufE mss. The Óðinn-names Hárr ‘Hoary One’ (cf. Hárbarðr ‘Hoary-bearded One’ in st. 3/5 below) and Hár/Hávi ‘High One’ (cf. the names of king Gylfi’s interlocutors, Hár, Jafnhár and Þriði in Gylf) are difficult to distinguish from one another. The nom. forms of these names are only found in the lists of Óðinn-heiti. Hár, the strong form of the adj., occurs in Grí 46/6, but Hávi, the weak form of the same adj., is recorded only in st. 4/1 below. Otherwise the latter name is found in the gen. in Hávm 109/4, 111/10, 164/1 (NK 34, 44): Háva hǫllo í ‘in the hall of the High One’. Von See (1975) especially 112-16) argues that Hár/Hávi ‘High’ cannot be an old name and is likely first to have appeared in the area of heathen-Christian syncretism (in der Zone des heidnisch-christlichen Synkretismus, von See 1975, 112). According to him, the old name is Hárr.
