Just that really. Expecting DS1 and thinking of Casper, but want to explore other / more Scandinavian options.

What do you think of Sven? Is Thor too odd?

Or how about Gustav?

Stellan?

I knew a mid 30s Soren and know a Leif under 30 smile

Also know a Thor aged around 40 - he is great and his name suits him smile

Lars is my favourite.

Gustav is good, very strong and royal.

I like Kaspar too

There is a good website called Nordic names if interested.

Erik, without a doubt!

I like Ansgar.
I know a lovely man called Olaf and my dd has a friend called Haakon. Otherwise can't think of many Scandinavian names.

DS has Loki as middle name. If DD2 was a boy she would be Sören Thor. I like Kjell (sounds more like Shell) but not for the UK.

From your OP, IME Sven is alright, Thor is too out there and Gustav sounds like a great-grandfather.

That aside I have nothing against the look or sound of the actual names.

Jens, Svend, Rasmuss, Torben, Hans, Henrik are Danes I know . Svend is too much in my book!

Odin

Gustav

Brilliant suggestions! Have added Pontus, Erik, Timo and Viktor to the list (and tentatively crossed out Sven) smile
