When Óðinn reveals himself to Geirroðr at the end of the poem, he does so by listing the names he has also gone by or acquired in the past. 'Dangler' (Váfuðr) is included in reference to his self-sacrifice.
|Óðinn ek nú heiti, Yggr ek áðan...||...|
When Óðinn is accused of providing his dedicate Geirroðr an unfair advantage in a marital quarrel, Frigg accuses Geirroðr in turn of being a poor host and chieftain ‑ a grave insult. Óðinn visits Geirroðr's hall and is recieved poorly. The two undertake a wisdom contest and when Geirroðr realises his mistake too late, it costs him his life.
