Meaning & History

Hludana is a Germanic goddess attested in five ancient Latin inscriptions from the Rhineland and Frisia, all dating from 197–235 AD (the Beetgum inscription was dedicated by a group of fishermen). Etymologically, Hludana is closely related to Old Greek κλυδωνα (kludoon(a) "high waves, rough water" and Biblical Euroclydon, meaning a violent north-eastern wind. Jacob Grimm suggested in Deutsche Mythologie that Hludana was to be identified with the Norse earth-goddess Hlóðyn.
