Nordic Names

The Nordic countries (also referred to as Scandinavia) consist of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and our names list consist of names from those countries as well as those that originate from Old Norse. The region's Viking history and mythology is very appealing to parents with Scandinavian ancestry or those that love the history of the area. Nordic names are visually exotic to most native English speakers and may be just the perfect solution for those looking for a baby name that is “different” but not “too different”. Do names like Thorben, Aksel, Famke or Freya tickle your fancy? If so, check out our collection of Nordic baby names.
