How to Create Cool Viking Clan Names

Brainstorming with your team can help you find the perfect clan name to reflect everyone’s interests and tastes.

Keep the following tips in mind when creating your own Viking clan name ideas:

  • Call upon history and mythology. Norse mythology and culture are fascinating to study. There are various gods, goddesses, worlds, realms, and beliefs you can use to inspire your clan name. For example, you might name your clan after Freyja, a powerful goddess associated with war.[7] You could even choose the name of a real Viking clan, such as Ylfings.
  • Use Old Norse language. Historically, Vikings were Scandinavian and spoke the Old Norse or Old Scandinavian language. You can use terms from this language as part of your clan name. If you’re unfamiliar with the language, find an Old Norse-to-English dictionary online to browse your options. Words like “torr” (ruined/stained) or “skipari” (sailor)[8] might be perfect for your team!
  • Get inspiration from your game. If historical references and Germanic languages go over your head, simply use the game you’re playing for inspiration. For example, does the game include direct combat with a foe? Choose something like our list’s “Clash Contract” to show your Viking clan’s perseverance in clashes with your enemies.
