DryLake Says:


Some of my deceased relatives had this as their family name. In norwegian, the word refers to a minor part of a certain type of forest. I think it is a charming choice for a first name, and it souds nice, both when you pronounce the o the english way, or if you use the å-sound the word has in my native language.
