Origin and Meaning
Old Norse name and byname
Old variant form of Svartr   
- The name of the fire giant. He is the enemy of the gods at Ragnarǫk where he and Freyr, who has to fight without his sword, kill each other. In the Gylfaginning he is described like this: He has a flaming sword; at the end he will come and wage war and will conquer all the gods and will destroy the whole world by fire. Surtr rides in the vanguard and before him and behind him there will be burning fire; his sword is splendid and shines brighter than the sun.
