Medieval form of Grímr meaning "mask, helmet", which remained popular in Anglo-Scandinavian areas well into the 12th century. This was used as another name for the Norse god Odin. Alternatively, as an Old Danish and Old Swedish name derived from Old Norse grimmr "cruel, grim", often used as a part of a name such as Tyrgrim or Grimulf.
