    Read The Lord of the Rings.

    Gandalf (meaning = elf-wizard) is actually an Odin-type character.

    Nice try, but Odin had:
    1 eye
    A spear that never missed
    Sliepnir
    thrist for violence
    wounds from being impaled on a branch upside down for seven days.

    Although obviously I don´t doubt the Lord of the Rings has Norse influence, as Tolkien himself admitted, Gandalf is not very odin-esque

    And his ravens Hugin and Munin.
    Hugin and Munin travel the world bearing news and information to Odin. Hugin means "thought" and Munin means "memory". They are sent out at dawn to gather information and return in the evening. They perch on the god's shoulders and whisper the news into his ears.

    Oh, and he was also known as Woden. Wednesday (or Woden's Day) is named for him.

    Woden was not Odin, regrettably

    Oh yeah! Jeez, I must have had a few when I posted that, hehe!!
    Either that or had Thor on the mind.
    That's right, Odin had the Eight legged horse didn't he? Sleipnir was it?
