This might suprise all of you, but I was first called by Odin, AllFather when I came of age.

My family is Odinist, though... most I am related to are agnostics, my father, grandmother, and I have specific patron Gods. Our deceased who were Odinist watch over us, and THEIR patron Gods are also our Gods.

Weird part? Grandma Freyrswoman and Lokean Dad are not on the same side of my family. Grandpa was for Tyr and wrote his diaries in Runic code of Runes representing German or Lettish letters.

My Dad's side is just what is now gathered together as "Urglaawe"- in multiple lines.

Odinism wasn't a "choice"- it just was. Some of us are "clever" and picked up on it, read the books left out, and learned. Others like my brother and uncle missed it entirely and are agnostic.

My mother was not clever enough to understand it- but evil enough to try. Since she didn't understand the ways fully she mixed it with Wicca and schizophrenia.

In our family- it works like this:

Latvian side: "Jani/Freyr is our ancestor and watches over all Lettish peoples. When we die, we go to Vanaheim/heaven where it is never too cold, rivers flow with beer, and food is plentiful. Other Gods exist, Only Mara (Frigg?) and Freyr/Janis care about us outside of local Daevas (wights/vaetirr- who show as animals)

German side: "We hid behind the Lutheran church, worship our ancestors, and still drink to Odin. Our family is still Hexerei and famous for it. Just don't be public about it----- damnit, Tyrienne." Dad's father is terrified of the old ways, his mother now has dementia but could throw one heck of a hex.
