Abstract [en]

The article discusses three place names in Jämtland, Sweden: Åbbåsen, Gåxåsen and Fjösåsen. The main focus is on the possibility of personal names used in these compound place names, together with the locally very common second element åsen (ʻridgeʼ). Previous interpretations have suggested that personal names Ubbe, Gök and Fjäder constitute first elements in the aforementioned place names, and the author agrees in two out of three cases. When studying Åbbåsen, no clear evidence has been found to support one hypothesis more than the other.
