Why use "Mimir" as the project codename? Mímir (Old Norse "The rememberer, the wise one") or Mim is a figure in Norse mythology renowned for his knowledge and wisdom. It is said that the god Odin, father of Thor, receives secret knowledge and counsel from Mimir (also characters made popular by the Thor and Avengers comics and movies).
