Andvari: Lit. ‘watcher’. This is the name of a legendary dwarf who assumed the form of a pike, hence, ‘pike’ (Kristensen 1917, 112). Cf. the prose to Reg (NK 173): hann var lǫngom í forsinom í geddo líki ‘he stayed in the waterfall for a long time in the shape of a pike’. Other than in the present list, the word does not occur as a heiti for ‘fish’.
