- For other meanings of Ve, see Ve (disambiguation).
In Norse mythology, Ve was one of the Aesir and a son of Bestla and Bor. His brothers were Vili and Odin. He was known for having given humanity the powers of speech and their external senses. According to Loki, in Lokasenna, he had an affair with Odin's wife, Frigg. Together with Vili, he constructed Yggdrasil, the world-ash.
In Völuspá, at the creation of the first man (Ask) and woman (Embla), Höner and Lodur help Odin. In Gylfaginning, Vili and Ve are mentioned instead. As Snorri knew Völuspá, it is thus very likely that Lodur was another name for Ve.
