List of jötnar in Norse mythology

The Prose and Poetic Eddas, which form the foundation of what we know today concerning Norse mythology, contain many names of Jotnar (giants and giantesses). While many of them are featured in extant myths of their own, many others have come down to us today only as names in various lists provided for the benefit of skalds or poets of the medieval period and are included here for the purpose of completeness.
