M'ani is the moon personified. M'ani, personified, is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. Both sources state that he is the brother of the personified sun, S'ol, and the son of Mundilfari, while the Prose Edda adds that he is followed by the children Hj'uki and Bil through the heavens. As a proper noun, M'ani appears throughout Old Norse literature. Scholarly theories have been proposed about M'ani's potential connection to the Northern European notion of the Man in the Moon, and a potentially otherwise unattested story regarding M'ani through skaldic kennings.
