Meaning of the baby name ODINN.

  

OÐINN.  Old Norse.  From Teutonic Wuotan (q.v.), meaning "the all-pervading power."  Old Saxon Wodan, Anglo-Saxon Woden. (Academy, v.27, 1885)

    Odin, Wodan, the name of the founder of the ancient Northern and Teutonic religion, who was afterwards worshipped as the supreme god, the fountain-head of wisdom, the founder of culture, writing, and poetry, the progenitor of kings, the lord of battle and victory... (An Icelandic-English Dictionary, Cleasby-Dasent, 1874)

... "," in Sanscrit, signifies, to blow (as the wind).  In Latin, "vado," and in the ancient Norse, "vada," means, "I go, I go fast, I hasten on, I flew on."  Hence, in the old German dialect, "wodan" signifies the idea of the all-penetrating, which in various old idioms, passes into "wuodan, odan, odin," meaning, the all-pervading power, which was ultimately personified in a Germanic Deity. (The Zoist:  A Journal of Cerebral Physiology & Mesmerism, and Their Applications to Human Welfare, London, v.11, 1854).
