Sól is the personification of the sun in poetry. She is the daughter of Mundilfari and the sister of Máni. Máni and Sól were very fair and pretty, and Mundilfari gave Sól in marriage to a man named Glenr.

The gods were angry about that and they took the brother and sister and set them in the sky. She had to drive the horses Árvakr and Alsviðr which pulled the chariot of the sun.

Sól is also used as an Icelandic horse name
