Other Origin(s):Norse, Swedish
Meaning:Goddess of fate; Orchid
Whether it’s a lush floral name or an appellation rich in Norse mythology you’re after, Norna offers both as a feminine Scandinavian name. Norna has two possible origins; the first is from the Swedish norna, another name for the calypso orchid. The second is from the Old Norse Nornir and refers to the Norns—mighty female deities that can create and shape destiny. These beings are pretty mysterious, as no sources can confidently say from where they originate. They might be daughters of elves or gods—or may come from beyond the realm of the Norse otherworld entirely. One thing is for sure: baby Norna can shine brightly with a name embodying the natural and supernatural worlds, giving them the strength to weave their own fate.
