Móði and Magni

Móði And Magni

In Norse mythology, Móði (anglicized Módi or Mothi) and Magni are the sons of Thor. Their names mean "Angry" and "Strong," respectively. Rudolf Simek states that, along with Thor's daughter Þrúðr ("Strength"), they embody their father's features.

Móði and Magni's descent from Thor is attested by the kennings "Móði's father" (faðir Móða, in Hymiskviða, ) and "Magni's father" (faðir Magna, in Þórsdrápa and Hárbarðsljóð, ). Snorri Sturluson confirms it (Gylfaginning, Skáldskaparmál, ). According to Skáldskaparmál Magni is the son of Thor and the Jötunn Járnsaxa. There is no mention of Móði's mother.
