Jalkr: The name may be derived from jálkr m. ‘gelding’ (cf. Vakr in l. 5). According to Grí, Jálkr was one of the names Óðinn adopted on certain occasions. In Grí 49/3 (NK 67) it is said that he was called Iálc at Ôsmundar ‘Jálkr when visiting Ásmundr’, while Grí 54/6 (NK 68) mentions another occasion when Óðinn went by that name (Gautr oc Iálcr með goðom ‘Gautr and Jálkr among the gods’). In skaldic poetry Jálkr is also the name of a sea-king (LP: Jalkr).
