Freya may have been the same goddess as Frigg, as there were numerous similarities in Norse mythology between them. She was known as the goddess as femininity, beauty and fertility.
As her name somewhat suggests, Hel was the Norse goddess of the dead. It actually translates to “one who hides”. Her father was Loki, and her siblings were the Fenrir wolf and the serpent Jörmungandr.
Skadi was a giant goddess, and was enemies to the gods of Asgard. She was the goddess of winter, and with it, cold, darkness and death. Skadi also ruled over mountains and wilderness.
Sif was an earth goddess who was associated with fertility, family and harvest. She was married to Thor, and lost some standing in Norse literature around the Medieval time period.
