In Norse mythology Huginn and Muninn are ravens that belong to the Norse god Odin. They would sit on his shoulders and Odin would often be referred to as the ‘raven-god’ because of this. The ravens’ names translate as ‘thought’ (Huginn) and ‘memory/mind’ (Muninn). Odin gifted the ravens the ability to speak and each day he would send them out across the world of Midgard to collect information about the events in the land. As a result, Odin was well informed of all the things that they saw and heard. Odin had suspicions that maybe one day the ravens wouldn’t return.
