Top 10 Nordic Baby Names

Top 10 Nordic Baby Names

Are you looking for inspiration for your next baby name? Why not go Nordic! Here, you will find our picks for a top ten of Nordic baby names for boys and girls.

With the wave of movies and TV-shows about the Vikings, and, of course, the popularity of Marvel’s Thor (inspired by the Norse God of the same name), many Nordic names have seen a revival in popularity. In the Nordic countries, traditional Scandinavian baby names are now a growing trend.  

More internationally sounding baby names, such as William and Nora, are still frontrunners on the charts in Scandinavia, but names like Magnus and Freja are also climbing the lists these years. And no wonder! They are historical, unique and also just plain adorable.


Here at Bambo Nature, we are very proud of our Nordic heritage. We are a family-owned Danish company with a long history; we have made baby diapers for 40 years, and we still produce our eco-labeled, breathable and super absorbent baby diapers in our factory in Denmark, with great respect for the environment and our Nordic heritage.
