Title of the next paragraph in long-form content: The one thing they really wish more companies would start doing.
What do you think our biggest issue is? In a word—communication. It’s what we need most and it’s what we struggle with the most as an industry, too. We’re all so busy that catching up on everything going on can be overwhelming to even us, let alone someone who doesn’t work at any NMI company! That being said, there are certain things which could help alleviate this problem significantly–namely email notifications from reputable sources such as Association members or trade magazines.

I’m not saying you should send out newsletters every week (that gets old), but in general updates about new products/services for your customers and major happenings within our industry go over well because people are getting so little communication otherwise.
What would you like to see more companies doing?
It’s really hard for us in the Nordic male names industry as a whole, but it could be even harder for newcomers who are just starting out with zero connections and no idea what they’re looking at! Communication is key we need people not only coming into this field regularly (because we don’t have enough!), but also staying long-term. That means giving them all the information about our products, services, trade shows/meetings that they can attend, or even just options on where to get started if they know nothing of our world at all. Our goal should always be to educate those new entrants and keep them around because there
Danes have a long tradition of naming their children after popular figures in history
In the 1800s, many Danish parents named their child ‘Christian’ or ‘Christine’. These names were often derived from Christian IV who was king during that time and had so many different titles. He was called Frederik II before he became King at age six when his father died. As an adult, following his coronation as King, he took on the title Kristian den Anden (‘second christ’) which then morphed into Christian
Danes consider it important to name their children with biblical meaning behind them. For instance, one recent trend is giving names like “Jesus” and “Jesper.” The other trend is choosing names that are “easy to pronounce”.
Danish parents often give their children two names. One of those is a common Danish name and the other might be from another language or culture, but it normally has some connection with Denmark
Babies often receive one name at birth and then have a middle name given to them later in life (either by themselves or someone else) which may not always be related as closely to the first[s]
In 2008, there were only 53 girls named ‘Naja’ while there were 208 boys called Naja who had been born over the same span–clearly indicative of how different baby girl’s names can be from boy’s
I am a leader in the Nordic Male Names industry. It’s not just a name that we sell – it’s an investment in your child, so there is no rush to choose. A deliberate decision made with care and consideration will help you find the best possible match for him or her. That said, when I ask people what they think of when they hear “Nordic Male Names” some common replies are: Vikings, Norse Gods (Thor), Scandinavia and Iceland. But if you dig deeper into these answers, you might be surprised at how much more there is to know about our culture!
We have plenty of new items coming up this year too including: The Name Quiz; a Scandinavian People and Places quiz; a Name of the Week with an accompanying article on that name’s history or meaning.
I hope you find these insights helpful!
The Dan: “The powerful Viking is one of the most popular choices for Nordic baby names.”
The Villi: “This strong Norse god rules over fate and time, as well as being associated with agriculture, wealth and war.”
Thorvaldr (Thor): “An Old Norse male personal name derived from Þórr which means thunder”. It has been traditionally considered to mean “thundering” or originally more literally “(one) who thunders”. Thor’s hammer Mjolnir is in reference to his “thunderbolts”.
Ingolf: “An Old Norse male personal name derived from a word meaning ‘joyful’.” The masculine given name is in use both in Scandinavia and the United States. It has been traditionally considered to mean “happy” or originally more literally “(one) who laughs”.
Gunnar: “The Scandinavian form of Gunther, which derives from Gundahar,” with origins as Germanic (Old High German). Traditionally it’s translated as “powerful fighter”, but also translates to “warrior.”
