Nordiskt runnamnslexikon
Institute for Language and Folklore.
2007 (Swedish)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Nordiskt runnamnslexikon ('Dictionary of proper names in Scandinavian Viking Age runic inscriptions') is the result of a research project carried out during the years 1999-2001 at Institutet för språk och folkminnen (Institute for Language and Folklore) in Uppsala. This fifth edition is an amended version of former editions published on the Internet.

The dictionary contains alphabetical lists of personal names, mythical names, saints' names, and place-names occurring in Viking Age Scandinavian runic inscriptions, found in both Scandinavia and outside Scandinavia. An etymological explanation for each personal name is provided. In addition, etymological articles of personal name elements are given, together with lists of recorded compounds. The dictionary contains moreover a series of frequency tables of personal names based on different aspects, and also a reverse-alphabetical list of personal names.
