The harvest of the Valkyries

The name Valkyrie means "the one who chooses the fallen." This is because they were the ones who decided which warriors lived and which died. Then they collected the souls of the bravest warriors to turn them into Einherjar, soldiers who would fight for Odin during the Ragnarok
Therefore for the warriors it was a cause of shame not to die at the hands of an enemy. For them it was an honor to die fighting and being chosen later to be brought before Odin in the Valhalla. Wikipedia
