"Thor's stone"

Haldor Origin and Meaning

The name Haldor is a boy's name of Scandinavian, Norse origin meaning "Thor's stone".

This, like many Norse and Scandinavian names, remains icebound, though with the unexpected rise of such ancient Scandinavian mythology names as Odin, Thor, and Freya, we may see Haldor rise again.
