Norwegian term or phrase: "genie" and "Genimylder"
I am translating Viegeland's scalpture work from English which is originally translated from Norwegian, I suppose. I found two scalpture title,

1.Barne(genie)-sverm

2.Spebarn i en haug. "Genimylder".

Both genie and Genimylder is translated as Genius, but the source seems to be different. I would like to know what is the difference between Genie and Genimylder so that to understand the true meaning of "genius".Is it simply singular and plural form?

Thanks in Advance!

Explanation:
Mylder means abundance or plentitude or myriad. Genimylder thus means an abundance of genius. This is a strange title, and not a word that you would run into in everyday life.
