Father[edit]

Who is father of Ullr? His mother is Sif, but Thor is not his father. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.86.230.114 (talk) 08:17, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately, this information is not provided by surviving sources. :bloodofox: (talk) 15:35, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Asterisk[edit]

It is questionable whether we should mark the Common Germanic form as unattested, *Wulþuz. It is true, we don't have the normalized wulþuz in runic, but we do have owlþu, read as wolþu, which is considered its equivalent. There was no orthography in the 3rd century. dab (𒁳) 11:05, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Not glory[edit]

Not glory but Ull ~ *Wulþuz ~ wealth. It should have been obvious. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 20:00, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Thorpe's translation[edit]

In the Poetic Edda section, the credit tag "– Thorpe's translation" after the English translations was on the same line as the last line of text. As the reader first encounters it, it seems as if it should be part of the text, which is confusing -- especially if the browser window is too narrow for the full width of the lines. I've taken it off the three fragments and credited Thorpe in the first para. --Thnidu (talk) 22:23, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
