Sweden, Norway, and Denmark are the three core countries that define Scandinavia (Finland, Iceland, and islands in the area are occasionally included in this grouping as well). These northern European countries are unified by similar languages and historic ties. If you’re of Scandinavian ancestry, you need to take a look at this list of the most popular Scandinavian boy’s names.

Jensen, meaning ‘son of jens,’ is tops on the list; it comes from the Danish and Norwegian last name. Also on the list is Thorin, which comes from the Scandinavian god of thunder Thor and was the name of the dwarf leader in “The Lord of the Rings” movies. Or consider Leif (pronounced LIYF), which means ‘dearly loved.’

There are many more options to consider on our list of the top 100 most popular boys’ names. That list is updated frequently with data from the 1,500-plus hospitals with whom we work, so you’ll always see the latest in baby naming trends.
