GeofonThere is no evidence for Geofon left in Old English literature, save for her name is a word for "ocean." This should not be taken to imply she was not worshiped however. One of her legends, told to us in the Ragnarsdrápa, preserved in the Heimskringla, would have been known to the Angles on the continent. The legend is that of the creation of the island of Zealand. She took her four sons by a giant, and as oxen plowed out the island, and gave it the name Zealand. We are further told in the Prose Edda, that she married the king, Scyld (Skjöldr) afterwards. Snorri holds that she recieved the souls of unmarried women while in the Lokasenna she is said to be as omniscient as Woden himself.
Her name may derive from a word meaning "to give." And this would place her perhaps in the cult of the of mothers known amongst Germanic mercenaries in service to Rome in Great Britain. These goddesses usually had names like Garmangibi "giving."
