Bears in Norse Mythology

Recommended Posts

Surprisingly, there is little reference to bears in Norse myth.

 

In fact, the berserkr is about the only Norse reference I can think of.

 

From the Wikipedia berserker article:

 

The term berserker comes from Old Norse berserkr (plural berserkir), meaning literally "bear skin" or "bare skin", alluding either to wearing the "skin" of a bear, i.e. to be bear-like in rage and strength, usually in battle, or to the habit of berserkers going into battle unarmoured, or often, completely naked. Some berserks also took names with björn in them in reference to a bear.
