Are Valkyries goddesses?

Or are they more comparable to angels? Or are they strictly they're own thing? I know that they are helper spirits to Odin, but does this exclude them from being deities? Do Norse mythologists know for sure one way or the other in any case?

    If you must draw a comparison, Valkyries are more like Archangels.  They were created by Odin as his enforcers.

    Not Goddesses.

    Immortal soldiers and concubines of Odin.
