Scandinavian Names

The Scandinavian countries (also referred to as Norse or Nordic) consist of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden and our names list consist of names from those countries and also 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. Scandinavian 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 Scandinavian baby names.
