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?

I love Gustav, it's one of my favourite names.

How about Olli or Olaf? Ranulf?

Ahhhh. This thread makes me very happy :D. I love Scandinavia and Scandinavian names. Other names I think are lovely, aside from most of what's already been said, are Sigurd, Svein, Roald and Sivert.
Admittedly I'm big on the Norwegian side of things. However, I work with a Torben (live in Scotland) and think that it's a brilliant name

Jonni pronounced Yoni. Very MN.

I love Soren & Lars.

Grew up in Denmark

VERY surprised to se someone say Soren is a old mansname where I live it is a solid standard (like George) you always know someone with that name I love it and dd3 has the feminine version as her middle name.

Always liked Lars Other suggestions would be

Magnus (though not sure i would in the UK due to how harsh the G gets pronounced)

i'm really loving Jesper. I think oi would maybe get exasperated with explaining that it isn't Jasper though <sigh> might put it on my list anyway

Some great names here. Quite like Torben and Hans. Becoming quite attached to Gustav and Linus too though! Thanks all

My ds1 is called Axel, gets good feedback all the time. We live in UK, in Sweden I wouldn't have picked it, too common there. Currently expecting dc2. If it's a boy we're considering Gusten, Tor, Olof, Loke.
Mind Axel can be spelled Aksel too, more Norwegian than Swedish. Will follow the thread to pick up ideas myself!

I like Axel a lot moas! It is on the list. Congratulations on DC2 smile
