Meaning:To cry, whine; Twin; Hermaphrodite
Ymir is a mystical name borne by the very first giant in Norse mythology—a being of such impressive enormity, his descendants built the world from his body. This ancient masculine title has roots in Norse and German, meaning “to cry or whine,” “twin,” and “hermaphrodite.” Ymir formed from water drops when the ice of Niflheim melted in the heat of Muspelheim. He created the race of giants by autogamy—from his armpit came a male and a female, and his legs a six-headed creature. To give this lofty appellation even more of a celestial appeal, the planet Saturn has a moon called Ymir.
