In Norse mythology, Ím or Imr is a giant and the son of Vafþrúðnir. According to stanza 5 of the poem Vafþrúðnismál from the Poetic Edda:

"Then Óðinn went to try the wisdom
of the all-wise giant [Vafthrudnir];
to the hall he came which Im's father owned;
Odin went inside."
— Larrington trans.

Im is also mentioned in a list of giants in the Skáldskaparmál section of the Prose Edda by Snorri Sturluson.
