Norse Mythology Baby Names & Norse Mythology Names
The Norse Mythology category refers to names derived from ancient Norse legends, folklore, and mythos and pagan traditions. Typically Norse mythological names are from gods, goddesses, heroes and other characters of great importance within the Nordic traditions and histories. Norse, itself, is a Germanic language spoken in Scandinavian regions during the Viking Age, from around 700 to 1300 AD. Norse eventually developed into modern North Germanic languages such as Icelandic, Norwegian, Danish and Swedish.
