Note to Þul Óðins 2III

[8] Fjallgeiguðr: Lit. ‘mountain-wanderer’. A hap. leg. Because Geiguðr = Óðinn (see st. 3/7), the name is most likely a kenning for ‘giant’ of the same type as fjall-Gautr ‘mountain-Óðinn’ and included in this list by mistake (so Falk 1924, 8). But cf. Reg 18/6 (NK 178) where Óðinn calls himself karl af bergi ‘a man from the mountain’.
