Roald?

I'm living in the UK but I'm very fond of Norway. I know people will automatically think of Roald Dahl (which I don't really mind because I was always fond of Roald Dahl's books, and he himself had Norwegian parents), but that's just a nice plus! I'd like something a little unusual but I know a lot of Scandinavian names can be hard to pronounce over here. Also, I'm not Norwegian myself, but I do speak Norwegian! Don't know if you think that'd make a difference? Thanks in advance x

It is Leif yes. Just an embarrassing typo on my part!

What about Olaf or Axel if you like Nordic names. I like Roald and although many people will think of Roald Dahl I agree that's not a bad thing.

My friend picked names that she wanted to make sense in both the UK and Norway - Oskar and Lukas. There must be quite a few names that suit UK and Norway?
