Since the name means “battler” or “warrior,” it’s no surprise Gunnar has a macho personality. Pronounced GOO-nar, a Swedish word with German roots, Gunnar, according to Norse legend, ordered a hit on his best friend to please his wife, Brunhildr, herself a warrior. What a tough guy! Americans first took to this ancient name in the late 20th century, and it finally made the name charts in 1991.
