Meaning:Thunder, thunder fighter; Thorn
There's nearly too much to say about Thorin, a gender-neutral Swedish name of Old Norse origin meaning "thunder" or “thunder fighter.” You might recognize Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit trilogy, the fearless leader of the “Company of Dwarves.” But even if Peter Jackson’s take on the classic novel by J.R.R. Tolkien isn’t awe-inspiring enough, Thorin is a name made to stand on its own. Thorin is also a habitational British surname dating back to the Anglo-Saxon era, possibly meaning “thorn.” Getting its acclaim from Thor himself, baby Thorin can feel inspired every day by their name’s godly connections.
