 A COLLATION OF VIKING NAMES 

By Stephen Francis Wyley

View Guestbook

This paper is an attempt to collate all the different proper names of Vikings from various sources such as the sagas, rune stones and extant Viking artifacts. In regards to memorials on rune stones and other rock carvings I have indicated the location of the memorials used as a source.

This paper is divided up into two main parts with separate lists of male and female names. Other smaller sections consist of sections on: names of unknown gendar, nicknames and even dog names.

You will notice that there is a much higher number of male names as to female names in the lists. This could be put down to a number of factors; 1) it is supposed that most of the saga writers were male, and 2) that females played a less obvious role in the reported goings on.
