Ukko, is the god of the sky, weather, harvest and thunder in Finnish mythology. Ukko is held the most significant god of Finnish mythology. In the folk poems and prayers he is also given the epithet Overgod, probably in reference to his status as the most highly regarded god and on the other hand his traditional domain in the heavens. Although portrayed active in myth, Ukko makes all his appearances in legend solely by natural phenomena when appealed to.
