Meaning:ancestor's relic
Olaf might be an uncommon name, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have any famous bearers. You probably know Olaf from Frozen as the snowman with the sunshiny personality, or maybe from Count Olaf in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, the criminal, although highly imaginative, uncle of the Baudelaire triplets. These might be relatively modern characters, but the name Olaf has a long history in Scandinavian countries. It's a Norse name that means "ancestor's relic," and was borne by several kings in Norweigan history. Baby will definitely be in good company, criminal uncles aside.
