Hugin and Munin (pronounced "HOO-gin" and "MOO-nin"; Old Norse Huginn and Muninn, are two ravens who help the god Odin.

Ravens were of great significance to the Vikings and revered as a sign from the Gods when they appeared. Odin had two ravens named Hugin and Munin (Old Norse Huginn and Muninn) The names come from the words hugr and munr which translates to "Thought" and "Memory"

Two ravens sit on his (Odin's) shoulders and whisper all the news which they see and hear into his ear; they are called Huginn and Muninn. He sends them out in the morning to fly around the whole world, and by breakfast they are back again. Thus, he finds out many new things and this is why he is called 'raven-god' (hrafnaguð).

From the Poetic Edda in the poem Grímnismál, Odin says:

Hugin and Munin
Fly every day
Over all the world;
I worry for Hugin
That he might not return,
But I worry more for Munin.

Helm of Awe, Ægishjálmr in Old Norse, was used to strike fear in the hearts of the enemy.

The Vegvisir , "That Which Shows the Way", pronounced "VEGG-vee-seer".
"If this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known."
