309 Norse Baby Names With Meanings

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.

Norse baby names run a gamut from rough and tough names like Solveig and Dag to tender and delicate names like Liv and Elin. These names are either composed of compounds referring to gods or warfare or are inspired directly from nature or religion. As for the surname, every child is known by his father’s surname, followed by the suffix –dottir or son.
