Norse Mythology Info
Kennings are strongly associated with Old Norse and later Icelandic and Anglo-Saxon poetry. For example, Old Norse poets might replace sverð, the regular word for “sword”, with a more abstract compound such as “wound-hoe” (Egill Skallagrímsson: Höfuðlausn 8), or a genitive phrase such as randa íss “ice of shields” (Einarr Skúlason: ‘Øxarflokkr’ 9). Also considered words of power.

Drawing of a Mjölnir pendant found in 1877 in Skåne, Sweden.
In Norse mythology, a fylgja (Old Norse, literally "someone that accompanies," plural fylgjur) is a supernatural being or creature which accompanies a person in connection to their fate or fortune. Fylgjur usually appear in the form of an animal and commonly appear during sleep, but the sagas relate that they could appear while a person is awake as well... when fylgjur appear in the form of women, they are then supposedly guardian spirits for people or clans (ættir). See also hamingja
In Norse mythology, Hræsvelgr is a giant who takes eagle form

Information on the history of fairy lore. Another good website to check is http://www.shakespeare-online.com/essays/fairiesshakespeare.html
Fairy comes from the Old French word faerie. The word has been overused to describe a supernatural being. There is a great deal of difference in classifying a being as a fairy from the medieval literature and those from modern literature, especially those belonging to the Celtic tradition. There are other traditions such as that found in English, German and Slavic folklores.
