Summary: Bragi is the Norse God of poetry.


    Norse names: Bragi

    Scandinavian names: Brage

    Germanic names: Brego

    (NOTE: In addition to native variations by locality or over time, there are often several possible transliterations into the Roman alphabet used for English.)

    The Old Norse word bragr,, meaning “poetry”, is related to this deity name. It is unclear whether the name of the deity is derived from the word for poetry or whether the word for poetry is derived from the name of the deity (describing what Bragi does).

    The English word “brag” may be derived from this deity’s name (old Norse word braugr meant “to brag”).

basic information:

    Bragi: Norse God of poetry.

Bragi’s relations:

    Husband of Ithun.

    Possibly a son of Odin.

    A member of the Aesir.


from “The Handbook of Norse Mythology”:
by Karl Mortensen, 1898 (“Nordisk mythologi”), original Danish
translated into English 1913 by A. Clinton Crowell

    10. BRAGI is god of the scaldic art, and he is married to ITHUN, who guards the apples which the gods eat when they grow old. Afterwards they grow young again, and so it will continue until Ragnarok.

from “Gylfaginning”:
by Snorri Sturluson

    One is called Bragi: he is renowned for wisdom, and most of all for fluency of speech and skill with words. He knows most of skaldship, and after him skaldship is called bragr, and from his name that one is called bragr-man or -woman, who possesses eloquence surpassing others, of women or of men. His wife is Iþunn.

from “Skáldskaparmál”:
by Snorri Sturluson

    How should one periphrase Bragi? By calling him husband of Iþunn, first maker of poetry, and the long-bearded god (after his name, a man who has a great beard is called Beard-Bragi), and son of Odin.
