Modi or Mode

(i.e. courageous, from a root cognate with the Danish mod, and the German muth "courage") is in northern mythology the name of a son of Thor, who, the legend goes, is to survive the destruction of the world at Ragnarock, and in the renovated world will share with Mogni the possession of their father's hammer, and engage in the extermination of all strife. See Thorpe, Northern Mythology, volume 1; Keyes, Religion of the Northmen.
