Many toponyms ("place names") contain the name of *Wodanaz (Norse Odin, West Germanic Woden)

  • Odense[1]
  • Onsberg - formally Othensberg, "Odin's Berg".[2]

Covered by a wood (a "holt") during the Viking Age. Viby may mean "the settlement by the sacred site" and contains traces of sacrifices going back 2,500 years[note 1].[3]

  • Othinshille[4]
  • Vojens - from "Odin's Temple".[1][5]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The location contained other names such as Tyrseng ("Tyr's Meadow") which is itself located near Dødeå ("Stream of the dead" or "Dead Stream"). Religious practices associated with Odin and Tyr may have occurred in these places. Further, a spring dedicated to Holy Niels exists in the area that was likely a Christianization of prior indigenous pagan practice.
