* Heithni comes from the Old Norse word heiðni which is a word
that was used in elder times to describe the pre-Christian religion of the
Northern European peoples. The word Heithinn comes from the Old Norse word
heiðinn which we use as an adjective to describe Heithni ideals
(ex. Heithinn ethics - those ethics which conform to Heithni), or as a noun
to describe those who live by the ethics and world-view of Heithni (ex. He
is Heithinn, those people are Heithinn). [Back]
