Is a very fine name, but personally I think the name Thorolf Mostbeard may be the finest of all Viking names.  I hope he really did have Mostbeard, and it wasn't one of those Little John style names, making fun of his weedy and inadequate chinfungus.

'Thorunn the Horned' is such an unusual name for a girl. Why do these lovely old names not get used any more!! :-D

David Gower's wife is called Thorun (although not, I think, Thorun(n) the Horned).

So I'm to understand these two gentlemen are distantly related and also that Codbiter took part in something sometime referred to as the Thing-fight.

Even the words sound like they are about to have an argument and hit each other with big axes.

I do like Codbiter!

I gave my Beornings real Viking names -- one of them is called Bergthórr beytill - Bergthórr horse-penis

I'm voting for Codbiter over Mostbeard, sorry. Even though Mostbeard rocks. -N

Is there a Thorstein Neckbeard, by any chance?
