Viking name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Viking names.

The Vikings were a Norse people who, between the 8th and 11th century, traded with and plundered much of Europe, as well as parts of Asia and North Africa.
A lot of misconceptions exist regarding Vikings, most famously the supposed fact they wore horned helmets, which they didn't. But even their culture ranges from savage barbarians to more civilized humans across different perceptions.

As far as names go, Vikings didn't know last names in the same way as many of us do now. Instead of an actual name, they would usually refer to people as son of or daughter of, hence why the last names all end in either son (son of) or dottir (daughter of). This is the exact same as the 'son' in modern day names like Michaelson for example.
