    (Norse mythology) mythical Norse warrior hero who gains an accursed hoard of gold and was killed by Brynhild; Siegfried is the German counterpart


  1. Sigurdnoun

    The hero of the Volsungasaga who slayed a dragon.

    Etymology: Sigurðr, from sigr + varðr, vǫrðr. Some sources connect the name with Siegfried, the hero of the Nibelungenlied, but Sigfrid


  1. Sigurd

    Sigurd is a legendary hero of Norse mythology, as well as the central character in the Völsunga saga. The earliest extant representations for his legend come in pictorial form from seven runestones in Sweden and most notably the Ramsund carving and the Gök Runestone. As Siegfried, he is one of the heroes in the German Nibelungenlied, and Richard Wagner's operas Siegfried and Götterdämmerung. As Sivard Snarensven he was the hero of several medieval Scandinavian ballads. The name Sigurðr is not the same name as the German Siegfried. The Old Norse form would have been Sigruþr, a form which appears in the Ramsund carving that depicts the legend. Sivard is another variant name of Sigurðr; these name forms all share the first element Sig-, which means victory.
