    根據凱特琳查倒的資料,Njord ,又名 Njordr ,是北歐神中的水手之神,風神、豐足、海岸、漁業之神。

    在北歐神話兩大神族中,他是屬於華納神族的神明,在北歐史詩艾達經中,曾經提過Njord,說他有能力可以讓水平靜(凱特琳認為這裡指的可能是波濤洶湧的水,或是暴風雨),也可以熄滅火。大概是因為它擁有可以控制水的能力。有些人說他也是火神,但是很少神明同時是火神又是水神,所以凱特琳認為他火神的職稱是可以控制火,藉由水。

    所以算是水系神明,他與豐收有關,大概也是同樣的緣故,因為水可以灌溉,又是萬物生命知源。

    他的妻子,也是他的姐妹,據說與他同名,兩人生下了三個小孩,包含有名的美神芙瑞亞。也有傳說,他的妻子其實不是神,是女巨人,不過這部份有爭議,可以肯定的是芙瑞亞是他的孩子,但是許多網站中提到的母親部分都不大相同。

    當北歐神話中的兩大神族,艾瑟與華納神族鬥爭時,兩族都體會到和平的可貴,因此,芙瑞亞被嫁往艾瑟神族,說是合親,也有點類似人質,此時Njord也跟著他的女兒ㄧ同到艾瑟神仙居住的地方生活。

    Njord

    by Micha F. Lindemans

    The Norse god of winds, sea and fire. He brings good fortune at sea and in the hunt. He is married to the giantess Skadi. His children are Freya and Freyr, whom he fathered on his own sister.

    Originally, Njord was one of the Vanir but when they made peace with the Aesir, he and his children were given to them as hostages. The Aesir appointed both Njord and Freyr as high priests to preside over sacrifices. Freya was consecrated as sacrificial priestess. She taught the Aesir witchcraft, an art that was common knowledge among the Vanir.

    Old Norse: Njror
