Skldskaparml give a list of the sons of Odin, which does not altogether fit with what Snorri writes. As such it is omitted from some editions and translations, but it does appear in Anthony Faulkes' translation. If not by Snorri, the list is all the more valuable in that it represents an independent tradition. The text reads:

Sons of Odin Baldur and Meili
Vidar and Nep Vli, Ali
Thor and Hildolf Hermod, Sigi
Skjld, Yngvi-Freyr and Itreksjod
Heimdall, Sming

Sigi is ancestor of the Volsungs. Skjld is ancestor of the Skjlding dynasty in Denmark. Yngvi is ancestor of a legendary Swedish Ynglings. Sming is ancestor of a line of Norwegian kings. All appear in the pseudo-historical Prologue to Snorri's Edda as sons of Odin and founders of these various lineages, perhaps all thought to be sons of Odin begotten on mortal women. See Yngvi for discussions of this personage who is mostly identical with Frey in extant texts, even though in almost all sources Frey (often called Yngvi-Frey) is instead the son of Njrd. But a Faroese ballad recorded in 1840 names Odin's son as Veraldur, this Veraldur being understood as another name of Fr, that is of Frey. See Frey for details.

Hildolf and Itreksjod are otherwise unknown as sons of Odin. The name Hildolf appears in the eddic poem Hrbardsljd applied by the ferryman Harbard to his supposed master, but Harbard is actually Odin in disguise and there is no clear reference here to a son of Odin. Hildolf and Itreksjod may have been legendary founders of families purportedly descended from Odin in traditions that have not survived.

Meili also appears in the eddic poem Hrbardsljd where Thor calls himself Odin's son, Meili's brother and Magni's father. In Snorri's Gylfaginning Ali is only another name for Vali and Nep is the father of Baldur's wife Nanna. If this list is correct in giving Odin a son named Nep, and if that Nep is identical to the father of Nanna mentioned by Snorri, then Nanna would also be Baldur's niece. But marriage between uncle and niece, though common in many cultures, does not normally appear in old Scandinavian literature.

Tyr, Hd, and Bragi are conspicuously absent from this list, one reason to believe it is not from Snorri's hand.

Some manuscripts have a variant version of the list which adds Hd and Bragi to the end and replaces Yngvi-Frey with an otherwise unknown lldner or lner. This may be an attempt to bring the list into accord with Snorri, even though it still lacks Tyr. Some manuscripts add additional names of sons of Odin which are otherwise unknown: "Ennelang, Eindride, Bior, Hlodide, Hardveor, Snnng, Vinthior, Rymur."

Sigi; he was the ancestor of the Vlsung lineage (see Vlsunga saga) who were Frankish kings according to Snorri.

Skjld. In Snorri's Ynglinga Saga in the Heimskringla, Skjld's mother is the goddess Gefjun and the same account occurs in most, but not all, manuscripts of the Edda. But Saxo makes Skjld the son of Lother son of Dan. And in English tradition Skjld (called Scyld or Sceldwa) is son of Sceaf or of Heremod when a father is named.
Yngvi. A son of Odin in the prologue to the Edda but identified with Frey son of Njrd in the Ynglinga Saga. In both accounts this figure is ancestor of the Yngling dynasty in Sweden (from which later kings of Norway also traced their descent).
Sming. Snorri's Ynglinga Saga relates that after the giantess Skai broke off her marriage with Njrd, she "married afterwards Odin, and had many sons by him, of whom one was called Sming from whom Jarl Hkon claimed descent. Snorri then quotes a relevant verse by the poet Eyvindr skldaspillir. However in his preface to the Heimskringla Snorri says that Eyvindr's Hleygjatal which reckoned up the ancestors of Jarl Hkon brought in Sming as son of Yngvi-Frey. Snorri may have slipped here, thinking of the Ynglings. As to the many sons, it is possible that some of the otherwise unknown sons in the previous section may be sons purportedly born by Skai.

According to Herrauds saga:

Gauti. Gauti's son Hring ruled Ostrogothia (East Gtaland), so Gauti appears to be the eponym of the Geatas in Beowulf. Some versions of the English royal line of Wessex add names above that of Woden, purportedly giving Woden's ancestry, though the names are now usually thought be in fact another royal lineage that has been at some stage erroneously pasted onto the top of the standard genealogy. Some of these genealogies end in Geat, whom it is reasonable to think might be Gauti. The account in the Historia Britonum calls Geat a son of a god which fits. But Asser in his Life of Alfred writes instead that the pagans worshipped this Geat himself for a long time as a god. In Old Norse texts Gaut is itself a very common byname for Odin. Jordanes in The origin and deeds of the Goths traces the line of the Amelungs up to Hulmul son of Gapt, purportedly the first Gothic hero of record. This Gapt is felt by many commentators to be an error for Gaut or Gauti.

According to Hervarar saga ok Heidreks konungs ("The Saga of Hervor and King Heidrek") versions H and U:

Sigrlami. He was son of Odin and king of Gardariki. His son Svafrlami succeeded him. Svafrlami forced the dwarves Dvalin and Durin to forge himself a superb sword, Tyrfing. They did so and cursed it. In version R Sigrlami takes on the role of Svafrlami and his parentage is not given.
In the prologue to the Edda Snorri also mentions sons of Odin who ruled among the continental Angles and Saxons and provides information about their descendants that is identical or very close to traditions recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Snorri may here be dependant on English traditions. The sons mentioned by both Snorri and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle are:

Vegdeg/Wgdg/Wecta. According to Snorri Vegdeg ruled East Saxony. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle does not make it clear that Wgdg and Wecta are identical (or perhaps it is Snorri or a source who has wrongly conflated Wecta with Wgdg). In the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle the Wecta form of the name heads the lineage of the kings of Kent (of whom Hengest is traditionally the first) and the Wgdg form of the name heads the lineage of the kings of Bernicia.
Beldeg. According to Snorri's prologue Beldeg was identical to Baldur and ruled in Westphalia. There is no independent evidence of the identification of Beldeg with Baldur. From Beldeg the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle traces the kings of Deira and Wessex.

Other Anglo-Saxon genealogies mention:

Weothulgeot or Whitlg. According to the genealogies in the Angian collection, Weothulgeot was ancestor to the royal house of Mercia and the father of Whitlg. According to the Historia Brittonum, Weothulgeot was father of Weaga who was father of Whitlg. But the two Anglo-Saxon Chronicle versions of this genealogy include neither Weothulgeot nor Weaga but make Whitlg himself the son of Woden. In all versions Whitlg is father of Wermund father of Offa. According to the Old English poem Widsith Offa ruled over the continental Angels. Saxo, though not mentioning Whitlg's parentage, introduces Whitlg as a Danish king named Wiglek who was the slayer of Amleth (Hamlet).
Caser. He was ancestor to the royal house of East Anglia.
Winta. He was ancestor to the royal house of Lindsey/Lindisfarne. This genealogy is found only in the Anglian collection, not in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.
Saxo Grammaticus' Gesta Danorum (Book 4) speaks of Froger, the King of Norway, who was a great champion. Saxo relates:


According to some, he was the son of Odin, and when he begged the immortal gods to grant him a boon, received the privilege that no man should conquer him, save he who at the time of the conflict could catch up in his hand the dust lying beneath Froger's feet.

King Frdi the Active of Denmark, still a young man, learning of the charm, begged Froger to give him lessons in fighting. When the fighting court had been marked off, Frdi entered with glorious gold-hilted sword and clad in a golden breastplate and helmet. Frdi then begged a boon from Froger, that they might change positions and arms. Froger agreed. After the exchange, Frdi caught up some dust from where Froger had been standing and then quickly defeated Froger in battle and slew him.
