NAME OF THE DAY
This name is connected to two roots. The first from the Latin "Magnus", meaning “illustrious, mighty, glorious, famous, powerful, important, significant, remarkable, of great value”. The Ancient Roman name "Magnus" was not used as a first name or a nickname, but distinctive in imperial. The second root linked to this name is from the Germanic element "*maginą", meaning “ability, power, might, main”, almost similar to Latin. Magnús Óláfsson, better known as Magnus the Good “Magnús góði”, was the King of Norway from 1035 and King of Denmark from 1042, ruling over both countries until his death in 1047.
