Gna

In Norse mythology, Gná is one of the three handmaids of Frigg, together with Fulla and Hlín.

She is the one who takes care of Frigg's matters around the world. Probably for this reason she owns a horse called Hofvarpnir, who is able to move through air and water.

She is one of the fourteen goddesses described by Snorri Sturluson.
