Gudrun is a beautiful girl's name with Old Norse and Scandinavian roots, meaning "god's secret lore." Gudrun is ideal for mythology enthusiasts and is derived from the Old Norse Guð, "god," and rún, "secret lore, rune." In Norse mythology, Gudrun is the daughter of King Giuki, who experiences a dramatic tale of love, betrayal, and revenge. She marries the hero Sigurd and later Atli, and her story is filled with dark deeds and twists. Known as Kriemhild in German tales, Gudrun's story appears in famous works like the Eddas and the Völsungasaga. Still a popular name in Iceland, Gudrun is cherished for its links to feminine strength, folklore, and divine secrets.
