Fornétes folm
e; f. Fornet's palm; Fornēti palma Wyl on eówe meolce Fornétes folm boil Fornet's palm in ewe's milk, L. M. 1. 70; Lchdm. ii. 144, 22. Nim Fornétes folm take Fornet's palm, 1, 71; Lchdm. ii. 146, 4. The Icel. has Fornjótr; gen. Fornjóts, the name of an eóten, es; m. a giant. Fornjótr's three sons had control over air, fire, and wind. In the Gl. Cleop. folm is glossed mănus, the hand or palm. As this refers to the palm only, it leaves us in difficulty what variety is intended by Fornet's palm. It must, however, be one of the chief species, as Fornjótr was a chief god of the heathen Icelanders.
