Bor is a primordial Norse man, the son of Buri. He married the giantess Bestla, who is a daughter of the frost giant Bolthorn. Bor and Bestla had three children who became the first gods: Odin, Vili, Ve.
The Prologue to the Younger Edda and the ancestry lines in "Hvorledes Norge ble bosatt"
(out of Flateyarbok) lists a father named Friallaf, part of the legend that Odin was a king arriving in the Nordics out of east Turkey. The "Hvorledes Nore ble bosatt" says:
"Munnon eller Mennon het kongen over Troja. Han var gift med Troanam, datter til kong Priami: sønnen hans het Tror, som vi kaller Tor, hans sønn var Loriche, som vi kaller Hlorride, hans sønn Eredei, som vi kaller Einride, hans sønn Vingithor, han sønn Vinginer, hans sønn Modi, hans sønn Mågi, som vi kaller Magni, hans sønn Seseph, hans sønn Beduigg, hans sønn Atri, hans sønn Trinan, hans sønn Heremoth, som vi kaller Hermod, hans sønn Skjaldin, som vi kaller Skjøld, hans sønn Beaf, som vi kaller Bjar, hans sønn Godolf, hans sønn Burri, som vi kaller Finn, hans sønn Frjalaf, som vi kaller Bors, hans sønn Voden, som vi kaller Odin. Han var Tyrkerkonge".
'Borr or Burr (sometimes anglicized Bor or Bur) was the son of Búri and the father of Odin in Norse mythology. He is mentioned in the Gylfaginning part of Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda. Borr is not mentioned again in the Prose Edda. In skaldic and eddaic poetry Odin is occasionally referred to as Borr's son but no further information on Borr is given. Other sources are silent. The role of Borr in the mythology is unclear and there is no indication that he was worshiped in Norse paganism.'
