Odin is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Odin.

The name Odin is a boy's name of Norse origin. Odin is the name of the supreme Norse god of art, culture, wisdom and law -- who was handsome, charming and eloquent into the bargain. The name projects a good measure of strength and power and has excellent assimilation potential. The god Odin was referred to by more than 200 names, including Yggr, Sigfodr and Alfodr -- none of which is recommended. The word Wednesday is derived from Woden, the English form of Odin. Odin came to be used as a Norwegian male given name beginning in the nineteenth century, originally in the context of a romantic Viking revival. In the 2001 novel American Gods by Neil Gaiman, the character called Wednesday is an incarnation of the god Odin.
