Frigg (Anglicized to Frigga) is said to be foremost amongst goddesses of the Norse pantheon. She is the wife of Odin and mother of Balder, as well as stepmother to Odin’s many other children. She can be considered a goddess of love, marriage, and childbirth.
She is largely depicted as a wife and mother, and her name means “love” or “beloved one”. Also from her comes the Norse name for the planet Venus “Frigg’s Star”, and Friday is “Frigg’s Day”.
