Norse isn’t just about mythology, replete with gods, goddesses, and heroes. It also comes with a bevy of charming and beautiful names with historical and symbolic meanings.

Norse names are no longer restricted to Scandinavia. They spread all over the world, either through migration or invasion. The latest television series, on Rathnar Lothbrock, can also be credited for its popularity.
