Gunnlöd is a giantess who lived in the Hnitbjorg mountain in Jotunheim. She was the only daughter of Suttung, famous for her singing abilities. Her father locked her in the mountain and put her on guard duty of the Mead of Poetry. Due to her loneliness, it was not hard for Odin to seduce her as part of his strategy to steal the mead.

She is the mother of the Aesir god Bragi, a result of her three-night stand with Odin.
