Icelandic words are pretty easy to pronounce, tbh, once you understand the system. Unlike German or African languages, they really don’t have any mouth sounds we don’t use in English. And your pronunciations weren’t that bad Except, it isn’t “eye-zer,” it’s closer to “ess-ear,” or “ass-ear.” For the word Æsir. Æ is like in between an “A” sound and an “E” sound.

Okay, here's the thing: Loki's procession of disses and insults was in the form of Flyting, what could basically be called Nordic Insult Wordplay. Yes, the Norse did that, they composed lengthy pun-filled insults that often drive scholars to drink because without proper context, it's had to tell what the person doing the Flyte is talking about. Look, the winters were long in the lands of the Norse, so they had a lot of time with which to craft god-tier Dad jokes that mocked their enemies. Assassin's Creed Valhalla does nothing to give these works justice. The point is, Loki's insults weren't random, you just had to be deeply immersed in Norse culture to understand them. For example, one of the gods insulted was a god of a specific sea, and the insult shot at him was "The daughters of giants piss in your mouth", which just sounds weird to us, but the 'Giants' in question were mountains (named after giants), the 'Daughters' were rivers whose sources were in those mountains (Named for the daughters of said giants), and these two rivers emptied out into the same bay, that god's 'Mouth'. So, on the one hand, it's a terrible insult, on the other it's a perfectly accurate description of the local geography.

The mythological Superwholock (bear with me here): Greek mythology is Dr. Who, obviously, as it is the largest and most popular. Egyptian mythology is Sherlock, simply because they have that vibe, yknow? And finally, Norse mythology is Supernatural, i.e. the one that’s pure drunken chaos.

About Heimdall being the "whitest" of gods ... Jackson Crawford (whose channel on all things Norse is worth your time) says that "whitest" can mean a few different things, and one of the possible meanings is "white-haired" (i.e., old). Personally, I think Heimdall makes sense if he's the oldest of gods. He allegedly fathered humanity, so that would put him near the beginning of things. It would also explain why he's a watchman rather than a roving ass-kicker, why he can come up with clever plans, and even why his eyesight and hearing are beyond compare (possibly a nod to how he's experienced enough that you can't get anything past him). Probably doesn't have the vigor of his youth, but makes up for it by knowing his job extremely well.

"fun" fact, the rope that imprison Loki in the stone for eternity can't be broken because that's sadist of Odin made them out of Loki's sons guts and Loki can't broke them because he had promised them to never hurt them since they was the only non monster child he had, so he and his wife that keep the bowl to collect the poison of the snake, can't do anything at all to those restrain.

I'm pretty sure Mjolnir is actually just to heavy for basically anyone to pick up, and Thor being the strongest Aesir (with help from Mejingjord [a belt that makes anyone wearing it stronger]) is the only one to use it because he's the only one strong enough to actually lift it (and the weight of it just makes it a fuck ton more dangerous than most any other weapon)
