Torbjorn Origin and Meaning

The name Torbjorn is a boy's name meaning "Thor's bear".

Torbjorn, written as Torbjörn in Swedish and Torbjørn in Norwegian, is derived from the Old Norse Þórbjǫrn, meaning "Thor's bear." It's currently a grandpa name in Scandinavia, but some ahead-of-the-curve parents have revived it for their sons.

Torbjorn debuted on the American charts in 2021, largely thanks to a character in the video game series Overwatch.
