Statue of Nerthus
Nerthus is a Germano-Norse deity. She appears to be a fertility goddess and is theorized to be the first wife of Njörðr and thus mother of Freyr and Freyja. She was venerated by the Suebi tribe of Germans.
The name Nerthus (Nerþuz) is similar to a feminine, Latinised form of Njord (Njörðr). She is theorised to be the sister/wife of Njord mentioned in the Lokasenna.
