Other Origin(s):Norse, Norwegian, Swedish
Meaning:Thor's cauldron; Thor's helmet
Torkel is a masculine name with Swiss, Norse, Norwegian, and Swedish roots. Since Switzerland has strong relations with the Scandinavian countries, particularly Norway and Sweden, the country has plenty of names with these roots. Coming from the Old Norse names like _Þorkell_ or _Þórketill_, Torkel can translate to “Thor’s cauldron” or “Thor’s helmet.” If you’ve got a special place in your heart for mythology, this is a lovely way to connect baby to the Norse god of lighting, thunder, and storms. As baby grows into their mythical side and feels more connected to the skies above them, the name Torkel will be their own version of the mighty hammer.
