- The Norns are the Norse or Germanic counterparts of the Fates and were named Urðr or Wyrd, Verðandi and Skuld. Although the meanings of their names provide clues as to which ones spin, measure and cut the threads of life, the texts do not make it explicit.
- There were in fact far more than three Norns, with these three being the most prominent.
- The decisions to reduce the number of norns and replace their loom with a book was likely a creative choice to distinguish them from the Fates.
