The yew was an important material in the making of bows, and the word ýr, "yew", is often used metonymically to refer to bows.
It seems likely that the name Ýdalir is connected with the idea of Ullr as a bow-god. Both Atlakviða and Grímnismál are often considered to be among the oldest extant Eddic poems.

In early Germanic paganism, *Wulþuz ("glory") appears to have been an important concept, perhaps personified as a god, or an epithet of an important god; it is continued Old Norse tradition as Ullr, a god associated with archery and skiing. Old English wuldor and the Gothic wulþus), possibly in reference to the god, is attested on the 3rd century Thorsberg chape (as owlþu-), and there are many placenames in Ullr and a related name, Ullinn, but medieval Icelandic sources have only sparse material on the god Ullr. The Old English cognate wuldor means "glory" but is not used as a proper name, although it figures frequently in kennings for the Christian God such as wuldres cyning "king of glory", wuldorfæder "glory-father" or wuldor alwealda "glorious all-ruler".
In the mainland North Germanic languages, the modern form is Ull.
The Thorsberg chape (a metal piece belonging to a scabbard found in the Thorsberg moor) bears an Elder Futhark inscription, one of the earliest known altogether, dating to roughly AD 200.
