Notes:

Gná is a goddess, in Norse mythology, who runs errands throughout  Midgard and the Other Worlds,  riding the flying horse Hófvarpnir, and bringing the stories of what is going on in the worlds to the goddess Frigg.

Gná has been equated with Pheme [Fame], in Greek mythology, who repeats everything she learns, similar to Fama [Rumour], in Roman mythology.

In the same way, the Ravens Huginn and Muninn, bring Odin information from Midgard and the Other Worlds.

While Odin’s Raven’s “Thought” and “Memory” are famous, it’s not as widely known that Odin also had a Magpie , Lopt, from the Old Norse for “Air”, who informed Wodan of all the Fake News and lies being told in Midgard and the Other Worlds.*

-----------------------

Hófvarpnir, in Norse mythology, is a flying horse, like Pegasus and other Winged horses.
