In Norse mythology, Huginn ("thought") Muninn ("memory") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, to bring information to the god Odin. In the Poetic Edda, a disguised Odin expresses that he fears that they may not return from their daily flights. The Prose Edda explains that Odin is referred to as "raven-god" due to his association with Huginn Muninn, who are described as perching on his shoulders. Odin gave the ravens the ability to speak.
