NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Old Norse name “Æinriði”, composed of Proto-Norse “*aina” (one, alone, unique) plus “ráð” (advice, counsel, decision), or from the Old Norse “ríða” (to ride). In Snorri's Edda, Æinriði is described as the son of Lóriði and the father of Vingþór, but these names are also cognomina of Thor. The name has been confirmed to exist on the runestones of Rimsø (Jutland, Denmark, tenth century) and on that of Grinda (Sweden, eleventh century).
