Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil is an important feature of Norse mythology. It is the Norse tree of life, encompassing all nine worlds that are part of the ancient Norse view of the cosmos. It is an ash tree in which all of the worlds, including the world of humans and the world of the gods, nestle among the branches and roots. While the spelling of ''Yggdrasil'' can seem a little daunting for English speakers, the pronunciation is not actually very challenging: the word is pronounced ''IG-drah-sill.'' While the etymology of Yggdrasil is somewhat contested, one theory is that it means ''Tree of the Horse of Odin'' from Yggr, meaning Odin, and drasill meaning horse.
