History

The Vanir are a group of Asgardian gods associated with fertility, wisdom, and the ability to see the future. The Vanir are one of two groups of gods other being the Aesir. The Vanir hale from Vanaheim one of the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology. After the Aesir–Vanir War, the Vanir became a subgroup of the Æsir. Subsequently, members one of the the Vanir are sometimes also referred to as members of the Æsir.

All sources describe the deities Njord , Frey, and Freya as members of the Vanir. A Euhemerized prose account adds that Njord's sister whose name is not provided and Kvasir were Vanir. In addition reports a tale involving king Sveigoir's visit to Vanaheim, where he meets a woman by the name of Vana and the two produce a child named Vanlandi (whose name means "Man from the Land of the Vanir").

While not attested as Vanir, the gods Heimdall and Ull have been theorized as potential members of the group.
