Norse Followup

AH-HA! This is sweet. After dinner, I'm pouring over lists of Old Norse names and their means, pronunciations, -a changes to -u in the genitive, etc.

I end up liking a name I see: Kormak. Investigation leads me to Wikipedia, where I find a recording of someone speaking poetry from Kormakr's saga.

I'm not 100% sure why, but I started giggling and bouncing in my chair from giddiness I was so pleased.
