I find at least three significant parallels between Moses and Odin or Oden as he is called in Swedish.
1. Moses led his people from one country to another and so did Odin according to the Ynglinga saga: "But Odin
having foreknowledge, and magic-sight, knew that his posterity
would come to settle and dwell in the northern half of the world.
He therefore set his brothers Ve and Vilje over Asgaard; and he
himself, with all the gods and a great many other people,
wandered out, first westward to Gardarike, and then south to
Saxland. " See https://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/heim/02ynglga.htm
2. Odin is said to have settled in Sigtuna, north of present-day Stockholm. Sigtuna means basically "town of Sig". But what means Sig? That has not been sure.
But if we look at Moses, he was not allowed to enter Canaan, but died was buried on Mount Nebo and an other name for Nebo is Siyagha - see https://jo.geoview.info/siyagha,246752
So we have that Mosheh came to rest at Siyagha, while Odin settled in Sig, and Siyagha and Sig are of course similar sounding names. Actually I suspect that Sigtuna was named after Siyagha (Nebo) and that the area of ROSlagen in Uppland (https://mapcarta.com/Roslagen), Sweden got its name from ROSH ha Pisgah. The inhabitants of Roslagen are in Swedish called ROSPIGG. Ros(lagen) is officially beleived to be the source of the name RUSSIA.
3. The connection to Mayim. The name Moshe is said to mean "drawn out of water". Odin in Scandinavian mythology is said to have got wisdom from Mim or the water of the well of Mimir where he sacrificed an eye and he is said to have carried aroud the head of Mim and gotten advice from it.
Now, please note that if we in Hebrew would spell the name Odin or Oden as Ayin-Waw-Daleth-Nun, then we get the gematria value 70 + 6 + 4 + 50 = 130.
This is the SAME value that we get from M' MaYiM (= "from water"), since this gives 40 + 40 + 10 + 40 = 130.
