NAME OF THE DAY

Þórir ICELANDIC / OLD NORSE

This name derives from the Old Norse “Þórir”. 1) Variant form of “Thor (Þórr)”, the name of a Norse god, the personification of thunder. 2). A variant form of the Proto-Norse “*Þunra-wíhaR”, composed of two elements: “þónr” (thunder) plus “*wīhaR / *wīha” (fighter / holy). In Norse mythology, Thor (Old Norse: Þórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing, healing and fertility. The cognate deity in wider Germanic mythology and paganism was known in Old English as Þunor and in Old High German as Donar (Runic: Þonar), stemming from a common Germanic “*þunraz”, meaning "thunder".
