Rán is a Norse goddess of the sea. She catches drowned men in her net, and everybody lost at sea belongs to her in the afterlife. Rán's husband is Ægir, the god of the sea and of the art of brewing ale. Rán and Ægir have nine daughters. They are the wild waves. All nine are named after different types of waves. As a group, they are referred to as either of their parents' daughters, or by poetic descriptions like “the nine skerry-brides”.

A deep blue-green, like waves on the wild and deep sea.

Helgi ordered the high sail to be set,

his crew did not fail at the meeting of the waves,

when Ægir's terrible daughter

wanted to capsize the stay-bridled wave-horse.

First poem of Helgi Hundinsbani
