Meaning:All wise
Don’t try denying it! The King of Rock and Roll came to mind, didn’t he? Well, you’re not entirely wrong to make that connection, because Alvis is an alternative to the name Elvis and shares the Old Norse origin and meaning “all wise.” In Norse mythology, when a dwarf called Alviss wishes to marry the daughter of Thor, the god of thunder, he is put to the test. He has to answer any and all questions, which he does. This worries Thor. So the god keeps on asking till the sun comes up. Determined to prove himself, the dwarf doesn’t realize time has run out and suffers a cruel fate. So Alvis is not just your average moniker, it cautions baby into being more discerning and smarter when it comes to solving problems. Let not Alviss the dwarf turning into stone be for nothing!
