Gimly: The name

Gimly draws inspiration from the Norwegian word "Gimléi," which translates to "protected from fire."

In Norse mythology, Gimléi symbolizes a serene and secure place, shielded from harm and from where a better world can be built. We embrace this analogy to foster a culture of excellence, creativity, and integrity at Gimly.
