And the Finns were famous among the Norse as magicians. The proposition here is that this is exactly what it was. The word means The history of mydin or blazing.
Male shamans in Siberia were reported by M A Czaplicka as wearing a pair of circles on their shirts, to represent breasts. There would be no connection to this except that in Germany by the Roman writer Tacitus he states: The Finnish tribes were at the far western edge of that spectrum of shamanic practice.
There would be great benefits in the form of influence and power for any man who adopted the female role of magician; and from Tacitus we have testimony that such did occur. A fascinating side of this in India is that a god is called a deva, but a godlike non-deva is an an-sura asura.

These Asura appear to be lesser beings, men in fact, who became as gods, and the Hindu stories lend credence to the idea of the Aesir being men who were elevated to godhood. Priests tend to talk shop with each other. The name is apparently quite old, but how old?
Three possibilities seem to exist for its origin, and one of them is favoured here. A second type of god, however, was the ansura or asura.
Odin in history There is plenty of evidence that it was customary among Indo-Europeans to deify powerful and influential individuals.
Odin is given in many royal genealogies, a direct expression of descent from the god. There must have been one hell of an impressive magician, a wotan, at some point for them to deify him, because the tough, militant German tribes appear to have had little respect for unmanly men.
