In Norse mythology, hamingja (Old Norse "luck") refers to two concepts:

  • the personification of the good fortune or luck of an individual or family,
  • the altered appearance of shape-shifters.
  • Both Andy Orchard and Rudolf Simek note parallels between the concept of the hamingja and the fylgja.
