Pronunciation: Yord
Alternative:Jörð, Erda
Jord is the great Goddess of the wild, primitive and uncivilized areas on Earth.
Jord is the mother of Thor who was fathered by Odin.
Identified as a giantess, she is often referred to in poetry as “Odin’s bride”. The traces that have survived of the worship of the personified Earth herself show that she was honoured by the Germanic people, though not active in many tales.
