    Bjorn is a great name, my friend has a Bjorn!! He's about 6 months old and he suits the name sooo well.

    I was surprised when they chose the name but when I expressed my excitement over their choice of a more unique name, My friend explained that her grandparents were Scandinavian so they felt that this honored them in some way. I thought that was pretty awesome!

    Most people know how to pronounce it straight away, as it's not a name that is unheard of, but some people have to ask twice when she introduces him!

    Thanks Ottilie! My extent of language is some limited Spanish and German plus English. I'm taking a second year of German during the spring semester but its still very broken.

    Maybe Odin, or Loki? My personal favorite Norse name is Einar. It was my grandfather's name. It was also spelled Ejnar.

    I would love to have a little Loki running around especially consider that if my children are like DH they'll always be up to something. Odin is nice and it meets Hubby's requirement on epic.

    Ah, Bjørn is such a great old name. I know several guys named Bjørn and I also know a Torbjørn (who has a brother named G.u.d.b.j.ø.r.n) and a Thorbjørn. It's definitely a strong name and very masculine name. Torben and Bjarne are both rather dated names here in Denmark, but great nevertheless.

    Some other Scandinavian (but mostly Danish) suggestions:
    Aksel
    Aske
    Asger
    Balder
    Birk
    Eskil
    Frederik
    Frej
    Hjalte
    Magne
    Njord
    Sejr/Sejer (meaning "victory")
    Sylvester
    Tjalfe
    Valdemar
    Vilhelm
