Abstract

The article argues for a new scansion of the name of the wife of Loki as Old Norse Sígyn (with a heavy first syllable) and for its analysis as a reflex of Proto-Indo-European *sei̯ku̯-n̥-i̯éh2- ‘she of the pouring’, on the basis of formal and semantic considerations; exact and partial matches are identified in the Vedic lexicon (°sécanī- ‘pouring’) and in Celtic onomastics (Sēquana, name of a river and of its goddess).
