Hlín (pronounced LEAN) is the Norse Goddess of Consolation. She is one of Frigg’s handmaidens, and Frigg sends her to protect those whom she wants kept safe. Hlín also comforts mourners and kisses away their tears. She listens to prayers to Frigg, relaying the wishes of worshippers and advising on their fulfillment. Hlín’s name, which means “protector” or “shelterer,” is also seen as Hlyn or Lin.
