Njord or Niord

Njord Or Niord an ancient Scandinavian divinity; who reigned over the sea and winds. The Edda exhorts men to worship him with great devotion. He was particularly invoked by seafaring men and fishermen, and was therefore probably a personification of trade or commerce. He dwelt in the heavenly region called Noatun, and by his wife Skadi he became the father of the god Frey and the goddess Freya. He was accounted very rich, and able to dispense wealth in abundance to those who invoked him. See Thorpe, Northern Mythol. vol. i; Anderson, Norse Mythol. ch. vi, especially p. 341-3.
