Yeah Asgard is the realm of the Aesir (Gods), one of the nine worlds, Jotunheim being one of them also. Valhalla is a hall or fortress as you put it, heroes that died in battle are brought there by Valkyries to train for the battle of Ragnarok.
Those Valkyries are commonly described as (angels of) light in a world/time of darkness. I'd imagine this was taken into consideration given the Valhalla is a tube amplifier!
http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/ice/coo/coo16.htm - the story of how the Jotunn tried to get the upper hand on the Aesir and take over Asgard by stealing and concealing Mjolnir can be read here.
Or maybe they just come up with random names and I'm delusional, but either way it's very interesting!
human brains are pattern-seeking. we may be finding logic where there is just whim
