Valkyrie is a quite hulky but as far as I’m concerned it’s like an Athena or a Thora! A strong name for a strong girl. 💪
In Minnesota (where there's a strong Norse heritage) I recently came across a little girl named Valkyrie Rose. Sometimes that's all it takes to transform an intimidating name into something sweet and wearable.
This makes me think of Skulduggery Pleasant!
