Nowegian boy Names

This is a collection of male boy baby names from Scandinavia along with their meanings. Scandinavia of course isn't a country in itself. It refers to the region which comprises Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Norse Boy names

The names have spread through either emigration or indeed the warlike Norsemen who conquered (or at least had raiding parties) and settled in various parts of Northern Europe. For ease I have identified each name whether they are a Swedish (Sweden) boys name, Finnish (Finland) boys name or Danish (Denmark) boys name. Those which are not identified are commonly used in the whole of the region.

History of Norse names

The popularity of television series such as Game of Thrones and Vikings (HBO) have given some of these previously unique norse names a new lease of life. Even though they are more popular, they are still a unique and quirky name for anyone outside that geographic area.
