Aesirs Family Tree

Odin AKA inn (Old Norse), Woden (Old English), Wodan or Wotan (Old High German), and Godan (Lombardic) is considered the Chief God of Norse Mythology.

From Wikipedia. "His name is related to r, meaning "excitation," "fury" or "poetry," and his role, like many of the Norse pantheon, is complex: he is god of wisdom, war, battle, and death. He is also attested as being a god of magic, poetry, prophecy, victory, and the hunt."

He is part of the sir's, which are the second generation of Norse Gods. They deposed the Vanirs, which were elemental deities.

Those slain gloriously in battle go to his hall Valhalla (Old Norse Valhll), "Hall of the slain".

The following appears in Anthony Faulkes' translation. The list is all the more valuable in that it represents an independent tradition. The text is about the sons of Odin and reads:
