Popis In the article the Old Icelandic theonym Gná is analyzed from the point of view of word formation, etymology, and semantic typology. Taking in account the partial results, the following hypothesis was formulated: the theonym Gná may reflect proto-Germanic *gnó or *gnaihó, which seems to be a lost Germanic continuation of the Indo-European appellative *dhg'hmeH2- "earth" or its derivative *dhg'hmeH2ikeH2- "belonging to the earth". The theonyms designating the earth deities formed from the stem *dhg'hem- appear in nine Indo-European traditions. The analyzed Germanic theonym can represent the tenth tradition.
