Name Notes: Like the names of many other peaks in Auyuittuq, this name comes from Norse mythology. Breidablik, which in the myth had a silver roof on golden pillars, was the name of the residence in Asgard of the god of youth and beauty, Baldr and his first wife Nanna (see Mount Baldr for more on the mythology). Breidablik means "wide-gleaming", where there nothing unclean could be and there were "fewest baneful runes".
