Old Norse[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Norse heimr (home, world) + *dallr of unknown origin and meaning. The latter term is possibly equal to feminine *dǫll, from Mardǫll, one of Freyja's names, and perhaps cognate with Old English deal (proud, eminent), thus meaning possibly "World-radiance".

Proper noun[edit]

Heimdallr m (genitive Heimdallar)
