In Norse mythology, Hymir was a giant, a husband of Hrod. He owned a cauldron which the Aesir wanted to brew beer in. Thor obtained it from him.

During Ragnarok, Hymir will sail Naglfar, a boat made of the nails of the dead and freed by the preceding flood. Hymir will bring an army of giants to the battlefield, Vigrond.

Tyr was sometimes considered a son of Hymir.
