The hero is Askeladden (literally, the Ash Lad, because he always sits by the fire and roots and pokes in the ashes). —Norwegian Folk Tales, from the collection of Peter Christen Asbjørnsen & Jørgen Moe, translated by Pat Shaw Iversen & Carl Norman
Huginn and Muninn are the names of the ravens that sat on Odin's shoulders. From the Prose Edda:
The ravens sit on his shoulders and say into his ear all the tidings which they see or hear; they are called thus: Huginn ("Thought") and Muninn ("Memory"). He sends them at day-break to fly about all the world, and they come back at undern-meal; thus he is acquainted with many tidings. Therefore men call him Raven-God, as is said:
Huginn and Muninn hover each day
The wide earth over;
I fear for Huginn lest he fare not back,—
Yet watch I more for Muninn."
