Description of Norwegian Names
Norwegian Baby Names
The Practice of naming children in Norway is based on a variety of factors. Often parents will use Old Norse names such as Tor or Thor, Kjell (meaning "stone"), or Fraya (the name of a Norse goddess); or they may resort to Norwegian and Germanic versions of biblical names, such as Jan (John), Mari or Maria (Mary), or Ester (Esther). Since the 1960s, many Norwegians have opted for more "modern" or "multicultural" names. For boys, Tommy, Frank, and Kenneth have gained great popularity. Norway has the Navneloven, a "name law" adopted in 1964 that forbids the use of certain names that might be in some way disadvantageous to the child. Famous Norwegians include writers Knut Hamsun, Henrik Ibsen, Sigrid Undset, and Bjornsterne Bjornson; explorer and anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl; painter Edvard Munch; and composer Edvard Grieg.
