Other Origin(s):Norse, German
From Scandinavian, Germanic, and Old Norse origins, Bjorn might be the perfect name for a cuddly little boy. Although this name means “bear,” there will be nothing grizzly about this little one. Many famous Bjorns have paved the way for baby, including tennis star Björn Borg and ABBA icon Björn Ulvaeus. Those aren’t the only Bjorns who have made their mark, even the legendary Swedish king and Norse Viking chief Björn Ironside bore the title— what better figure to inspire the little leader within?
