12Its name is Mjolnir
Thor’s hammer in the comics also was inspired by and shares its name with the hammer that the mythological Thor used in the Norse legends — Mjolnir. That name, Mjolnir, literally means “grinder” or “crusher,” which is a pretty fitting name for a hammer that has leveled
mountains, cracked open the earth, and smashed a Hulk or two in its time.
For those not familiar with how Scandinavian languages and pronunciations work, that name can be a little tricky, as Kat Denning’s Marcy showed us to comedic effect in the first Thor movie when she kept calling the Asgardian weapon “Meuh Meuh.” It's proper pronunciation: myawl-nir.
