I am an avid crochet and other textile “artist”. I am Lithuanian, german and Norwegian. My lithuanian ancestors were illiterate when they came to America in the early20th century. So the immigration people gave my family this polish last name. Then my ancestors refused to teach the language or customs to their children. I am interested in learning about lithuanian “hex” symbols for protection and words to be placed in my textile work. Is there a cross section between lithuanian, german and norwegian lettering and other symbols? And I would love to find out my real last name, but I am sure that boat has sailed. Lol Thank you.

Teri Diehl /Overman February 20, 2018 at 11:17 pm

How would my name be written in the vikings symbols?

Bo tracy September 10, 2017 at 11:23 am

I have a picture of myself and in that picture I have an upside down triangle and an infinity symbol on my hand. What does it mean

Blaiden September 5, 2017 at 10:39 am

I’m not trying to sound like a religious nut or fanatic. I’ve been wandering in a sense it’s just fascinating how the Vikings lived. id love to learn more if someone could help me message me back here at

Brent August 26, 2017 at 6:44 pm

Wow, I have so many questions!!! I’ve always been drawn like a magnet to all things norse. I’m gettin my 1st tattoo very soon. I can’t find a definitive answer if there is a symbol for love, so if anybody have any information that be fantastic. I’ve read almost all of this thread and one big question that I have is how are all of you wonderful people tracing your lineage back that far. My mother is a hardcore Christian and refuses to ever talk about anything, so pretty much the only thing I know is I am of German descent. I had a teacher once in school tell me there’s a good possibility that I have some sort of Norse heritage. So to hear everybody talk about that has me extremely excited but also scared LOL

danette felix December 20, 2017 at 1:41 pm

The symbol for love is kind of elusive. When I do something that would require it I substitute it with Freya’s symbol

Scoob May 23, 2017 at 2:19 pm

I have traced my last name to Norse decent originating as Anger, Augerre, or D’Anger. Cool huh? What are some good books about modern Asatru? I know the very basic but would like to know more. We’re runes and other symbols part of magical workings like some other pagan religion?

Clayton May 11, 2017 at 9:33 pm

I’m looking to get a Norse tattoo. My last name is Ramstad. I’ve been told through family that it stands for Raven and Homestead. Would you be able to help me find the Norse symbols/writing for the meanings of

Dameon Miller August 26, 2016 at 2:02 am

I was raised around the Christian faith but could really never understand it. But i was always truly into greek mythology, Old norse mythology, egytain mythology. But i love old norse. Odin thor amd so on. The religion of the vikings the europeans before Christianity was ever a thing. I was actuelly wonder can anybody tell me of an old norse bible book so i can go and buy and rean. And can anybody tell me if their is an oldnorse church place in Arizona and Tennessee

Wade G August 30, 2016 at 12:14 am

I have a book from The Norroena Society call The Odinist Edda. It’s been put together somewhat like a bible. Might be what you are looking for. Keep in mind that we have no dogma in our religion. We follow a religion of continual learning. You will want to look at other forms of evidence than just books and you will want to read more than one book. We really need to think for ourselves. Some people have put together some guidelines based on the virtues in Norse paganism which are known as the Nine Noble Virtues. We have rituals such as blót and sumbel, which can be done wherever you see fit. My family and friends who celebrate together usually celebrate outdoors. We venerate our gods and goddesses, but we do not grovel to them. We strive to make our gods proud of us by the way we live our lives.

Anonymous October 28, 2016 at 8:19 am

This belief base is quite close to Buddhism. No dogmas attached. You decide what is just and what isn’t. It’s more of a guideline on how to act and be but you are always asking questions, they Lost never seem answered.

Andrew December 22, 2016 at 4:16 am

There are many books with many different interpretations, unlike the Bible you find in church. There is a book called the Havamal, or The Sayings of the High One. There is also the Poetic Edda. Most of what I have found can be extremely educational in the beliefs of the Norse Vikings. There are also books on practicing the modern Asatru faith. I am unaware of any places of worship for the asatru faith, though. 8 hope this was helpful

The poetic Edda and prose Edda are both written by a Christian.

Can you talk on the phone? I have info for you.

Samantha December 31, 2017 at 2:26 am

Hello, I’m also curious and am looking to connect via email, to someone with a bit more knowledge on the subject. Please let me know.

Cal February 21, 2017 at 12:13 am

The reason I ask is because I have books for you. But really you have to know that the olld “Ásatru” was not a religion. It was just how life was. They didnt have religious books. The Eddas is a mythical poem written by snorri sturlsson with stories such as the Havamal within it. But I do not mind teach and talking to someone who is like I was when I was younger.

Stan July 22, 2017 at 6:11 am

I would like to learn more I can only find so much online and me and my wife are very interested in this subject especially since we have a young one on the way and would like to teach them a new but old way to see life and give him or her a out of world pressured look and beliefs

Adam Milligan August 21, 2017 at 8:58 am

To be honest there’s no authentic ‘bible’ for the old ways, alot of what we follow comes from the sagas and the Havamal in particular is a good place to start! Try to steer clear from church like groups because it’s not a very natural way to get to know the higher ones! If your in need of guidance try to find a knowledgeable Gothi or vulva in your area failing that I would be more than happy to have an email exchange if you want reasources/magikal guidance :)

Thomas Winchester January 15, 2019 at 12:25 am

Because Christianity murdered your ancestors and tried to convert the rest by abopting and perverting the pagan days and symbols. They have failed and your ancestors are calling you home. Go on the internet and YouTube to Thuleanperspective. Make sure to check out the playlist on the YouTube channel. Hamingja!

the thunder cross looks like hitlers symbol

Anonymous June 19, 2016 at 2:25 pm

Looks absolutely nothing like a swastica, and that itself was taken from am Indian symbol for life. Symbols look alike there’s only so many things you can do with them.

Anonymous August 19, 2016 at 1:58 pm

Another name for the thunder cross is the swastika….it was just perverted and deranged to stand for something alot different.

MagikGhost August 27, 2016 at 12:46 am

Actually the swastika has been around for ages, well before Hitler thought about using try represent team kill em all. The swastika has been used by many different cultures to represent different meanings.

Hi everyone, I might looking for information I’m currently in the process of developing a tattoo based on my family tree, according to the records my father has amassed thus far I have norseman (viking) heritage aswell as celtic. A true mongrel Briton. I would like to incorporate symbols for family (or relevant). I’ve tried searching the Internet and found conflicting information so I’ve come to ask if anyone can help me with their expertise.

Jennifer April 14, 2016 at 3:16 pm

Hi Del. You can find a list of symbols at this link: The short answer, however, is there are no Celtic or Viking symbols for family. I get asked this at least weekly, and there is clearly a demand, so some have taken on themselves to invent a few.

cm429996 October 25, 2016 at 12:43 pm

This may be somewhat late but I’d figure I’d let you know. I’ve been practicing Norse paganism for some time now and I think you should look up “bind runes”. They make good tattoos. You can make your own bind rune and use it as a tattoo

erik March 15, 2016 at 11:09 am

ive traced my heritage back to olaf the black ive also grown up being taught the Asatru ways my entire life some good info on here nice to see other people tracing there blood line back

Jeremiah June 20, 2016 at 1:59 am

I have traced my mother’s side back to frosti karason and completely agree there is lots of useful information on this site and will use this site for future reference on some topics

may i ask how you traced your lineage back so far? i am and have been curious but not sure if using a website is the best choice. unless you can support a choice August 6, 2018 at 9:17 am

How can I trace back to heritage. Family from stavangar Norway
Thank you

Mallory December 30, 2015 at 2:40 pm

Can anyone please tell me the origin of the “prosperity” and “spiritual strength” symbols?

Jennifer January 9, 2016 at 9:45 am

They’re meant to be norse runes or pseudo-runes.

the thunder cross looks like nazi symbols joined together

Andrew December 22, 2016 at 4:24 am

I have read multiple comments about the thunder cross looking like a swastica. I would like to say that the swastica has been around for much longer than the memory of the nazis and their tragedies. In reality, saying that the swastica looking like the thunder cross would be more politically correct, seeing as though this symbol was around longer than the swastica, as well

Me October 31, 2015 at 5:36 pm

There are about 100 more additional symbols you could post from the Folklore tradition of how symbols were handed down from generation to generation and that is by Textiles, which saved the symbols from pre-pagan era into christian era, look up slavic and balkan embroidery and you will see all the ancient pre-pagan symbols, especially in the Latvian and Lithuanian sybolism

heather October 7, 2015 at 10:32 pm

many years ago I came across a popular Mechanics Book that had thr chinese ideoism of loyalty that they had the pattern to be cut out of ideoiwas to be cut out of wood and made into a lamp I have tried to since find that symbol but have had no luck anywhere can somebody please help me it was from the sixties

Hi! I am looking to get a tattoo in honor of my grandpa. His name was Loyal. I was wondering if anyone knew the Norse symbol for LOYAL. not loyalty, but LOYAL.

Judit March 17, 2015 at 9:46 am

Hey, I am thinking about a new tattoo, some rune symbol I have seen in a Viking museum in Oslo, but the truth is that i don’t know if I should trust the meaning at all. Can anyone help me? Send me an e-mail and I will send you the photo I took.
Thank you!

Aubrey McFarland December 22, 2014 at 1:56 pm

I love that a collection of symbol to this degree exists. I am looking for reference to symbols representing the gods of Norse history for a report I’m compiling. Would anyone have a good reference or source for this?

Rebecca A. December 15, 2014 at 6:07 am

This is great! I came across paperwork and DNA results that shows my direct bloodline back to Rollo the Wanderer :-) Very cool stuff. I call my 6 month old son my little Viking Prince. Now I’m looking to create a tattoo in honor of my heritage.

Anonymous February 6, 2015 at 1:11 am

This is great. I’m a direct descendent of Erik the Red on my dad’s side. Basically, as one would say he’s my grandpa way back!! Proud to be Viking!! Of course, I have the red hair too. My son as well who will be seven in February. I’m eclectic Pagan/ Wicca/Witch. Of course in a bit of Celtic too. We are the Vikings so hear me roar!! )0( :) <3

pablo April 3, 2017 at 4:19 pm

I am kin to Erik the Red as well! My family moved to Riverton, MB, Canada back in the day.. I am lucky enough that we have a huge book of our family history called the Icelandic Sage.. Goes all the way back.. Currently designing my tattoo for my grandmother… Loving the info on this page..

Anonymous March 20, 2015 at 7:45 pm

Hi I am really curious on how to track someone in your bloodline. I know that thier is viking blood in me, I just do not know who he/she was. Any information on how to track it would be extremely helpful.

Jennifer April 1, 2015 at 3:48 am

I would suggest gathering as much info from your family as possible before you begin. Then check free resources such as findagrave, etc. Many genealogy forums are very helpful and you will find the further back you go, the easier it often gets, as you will meet many distant cousins doing the same research!

Holger the Dane April 14, 2015 at 3:49 pm

Cant be… He’s off (according to History) Danish enharitage and besides that he is only descriped in Saga’s (Mainly from the Danish and Islandic).But if you claim to be a direct descendent i would like to know where they found his grave?

Erin Lale December 12, 2014 at 6:41 pm

Please, before you get any of these as a tattoo or jewelry, be aware of what they mean. The Nidhstong is NOT a symbol of Asatru. It is a curse. A vile curse based on the idea of shaming a man by calling him a submissive homosexual, which was “fighting words” in the Viking era. One could legally kill someone in a duel over such words. The idea behind the curse is to call the man a “mare” which was in the class of ergi-insults. This is not a symbol you want to wear!

Griff November 19, 2014 at 4:23 am

I’m glad to find other Vikings and to know that the religion survives and thrives today

anjul mishra July 11, 2014 at 7:56 am

these symbols are very like our vaidik symbols of sanatan dharma.

kheath101 June 17, 2014 at 1:30 am

As my ancestry is deeply rooted into the Viking world, as my ancestors are Erik the Red and Leif Ericsson, I’m always happy to find out more about my proud Viking heritage

luke shad July 14, 2014 at 2:35 pm

my family is from iceland and iv been trying to find out more about their origin but have hit a dead end. how did you find out your ancestors and would you be able to help me? my grandfathers name was Ari Sigifeur Svarrisson, and his fathers name was Sverrir Magnússon, but thats as far back as i have been able to go.

Jennifer July 16, 2014 at 1:54 am believe it or not is an excellent reference. The LDS Church as well has excellent genealogists. They did my husband’s family beyond the year 1100 on the Viking side. Keep in mind that spellings of surnames vary wildly even for the same person- dates and locations are usually more helpful.

James Olaffsson March 12, 2015 at 4:47 pm

My family is Swedish in origin and I can tell you that, that is probably as far as you are going to get with your heritage. Because at that point is when Modern governments started to form and tax the people. to do this they started tracking people by hereditary surnames, which allows us to trace our heritage through our surname, but before that time in the Scandinavian culture you where known as your fathers son or daughter, meaning if your name was leaf, and your fathers name was eric, you would have been known as leaf ericson, or if you were a girl, ericdotter. so its almost impossible to trace heritage past that point unless your ancestors had some fame or position that would warrant recording their family.

Anonymous April 8, 2015 at 9:13 pm

Yes, that’s true

jOsh in Kentucky November 6, 2013 at 10:22 am


I am working on a drawing for someone that wants symbols to represent birth, growth, love, honor, death and afterlife. Basically someone’s life from that time.

What symbols would represent those stages of life?

Thanks! – jOsh

Axel November 19, 2013 at 4:44 am

Hej Josh i Kentucky,

Jag föreslår att du använder det anglosaxiska alfabetet för att ta fram meningen du eftersträvar snarare än att stjäla från kulturer du inte har någon kännedom om.

Stig June 15, 2016 at 4:44 pm

A boat is a good symbol for a journey from birth to grave. And for the Vikings boats were an important part of life, as well as distinctive in design. By the way, make sure never to mix Celtic and Norse designs. If you do not catch my drift, stay off. If you do, keep it clean. Have a look at www. for inspiration. By the way, in all of Norway, I would trust one tattoo artist for giving me a Norse tattoo only. She gave me mine.

Brandon October 30, 2013 at 12:37 pm

I was brought into this world as a Christian, although I was never into the almighty one god whom controls almost everything. I’ve heared of other multi god religions but only the Norse Paganism actually moves me, partially because my heritage can be traced back to Viking Norway and Iceland.

Amelia Casey August 17, 2013 at 3:18 am

I have a pendant in the shape of a shield with a spiral inlaid in the center and I woul verry mutch like to know what it means. I have been searching for hours now and have nothing to show for it other than a theory that it is a representation ofa whirlpool and means community. Please help.

Jennifer May 6, 2013 at 7:06 pm

Hi Nick- I’ve addressed this at some length here: The same ideas also apply to Norse symbols. The Vikings, like the Celts, really did not have a concept of nuclear families as we do today. The closest to a mother/father dynamic would be Odin and Frig. Neither Vikings nor Celts would have had symbols explicit about love (at least not generically), but emblems of gods or goddesses might suffice.

Joe April 27, 2013 at 11:31 pm

I was a Catholic for most of my life, but have converted to Norse Paganism. I have a sense of belonging and have truly found myself in this religion. I have been practicing for 7 months and am dedicated to it. I wear the Hammer of Thor, Odins Knot and a Pentacle around my neck and never take it off.

Thorolf December 9, 2013 at 11:53 pm

Odin, chief of the Norse gods, learned the secrets of goddess magick (not easily – he gave up an eye and hung from the World Tree for a really long time), but in so doing, he brought about the twilight of the male gods (Gotterdamerung), because they became divorced from their female roots. This symbol, a male version (four spiral spokes instead of three) of the triskelion, represents masculine magickal power. It is a symbol for Norse magick.

Joffen Nordinghøj March 29, 2015 at 6:37 pm

Well as u can see its a symbol, of the sun, and the cyclus, but it can have alot og meanings in between!

Jennifer October 30, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Yes- but we must appease the gods of SEO, in order for people to find what they need. And everyone searches for “Norse.” :)

BlazedUp May 24, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Well i’ll be honest, History points out that Norse Mythology had quite an influence on other nations such as germany and sweden, after all, my people (Germans) were mostly barbarians and vikings at the time.

jericho June 7, 2014 at 8:27 pm

I was born and forced to be a Lutheran untill 4years ago when I was 13 I finally told people that I fallowed a different god than my family, I was drawn to Thor scense I could talk even tho I didn’t know who I was fallowing yet but then my dad told me he was interested in Asatrü and so I got books from him on it and Asatrü has fit me like my own skin. The only problem I have is I don’t know anyone around me that is Asatrü I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, MN anyone live near me? The only person I know besides me is my friend joe that I “enlightened” to Asatrü. :) (:

Iselin May 16, 2017 at 3:40 am

Åsatro. Not asatrü… Å = Aa. So you can write Aasatro. Åsa = the aeses (gods) tro=belief. No ü anywhere in sight ;)

Simon, you’re a disgrace to true scandinavians and people who not only represent the culture/religion, but people who actually tattoo these things on their bodies not only because they want to “follow” a religion. I personally think religion itself is a joke and I would never tattoo something on my body if it wasn’t suppose to be. I suggest you get a valknot next and understand the true meaning of what it is to be a norseman.

Det er veldig irriterende når folk tror de bare kan Åsatru uten skikkelig anstendig. Jeg selv er minst 50%, men jeg har ennå ikke deltatt i noen møter, men da fordi jeg bor i en veldig kristen by. Men deltar på samlinger ikke er nødvendig. Være av Norse anstendig er nødvendig.

I have just discovered the religion and instantly liked it so I now wear a Mjolnir pendant, out of all religions I have encountered and read about this one “Nordic paganism” is the one for me

I found a symbol on-line but lost it. It’s the Norse symbol representing “Strength, Courage and Loyalty”. Is anyone familiar with this symbol or how I can find it? Thanks.

Was it a symbol, or a Rune? The Runes each have meaning, and I’m thinking that what you are talking about is Thor’s rune, Raido, since we all know Thor is all of those things. Could also be Tyr’s rune, Teiwaz. Raido looks like the letter R, and goes with Journey according to some sources, where as Teiwaz looks like an arrow pointing up and goes with Warrior. Strength is Uruz, which is the rune of the Ox; looks like a lower case “n”. This information is taken from this image I googled for quick reference:
I wouldn’t take that as the sole meanings to any of those runes, but I would try to help the best I could with a quick reference.

I’m looking for a multi-body snake or serpent the has the meaning of eternal youth or Divine Eternal Youth. I believe it’s Norse but I could be wrong. I came accross it years ago in a book and can’t find it now. Any help would be great..Thank you

This is great Norse Mythology has been a big part of my life since age 6. I love the symbols and i’ve got tattoos of Odin’s Horn, Thunder Cross, Mjolnir, and the Wolf’s cross it was painful but worth it on my back is a tattoo of Fenrir the Wolf and I look forward to a tattoo of Thor
