Lofn (from Old Norse lof "permission, the mild") is an Aesir goddess in Norse mythology.

Snorri Sturluson names her in his Prose Edda in the Gylfaginning in chapter 34. In addition to Snorri, the goddess still appears in the Þulur, which were known to Snorri and were processed by him into a mythical narrative of their own.


Snorri resorts to etymology (lof "permission"), inspired by the paraphrases of the Kenningar: Lofn had been given permission by Odin and Frigg on the basis of her nature to join and marry loving men and women who had previously been forbidden to do so.
