Oh! I thought of something interesting to say. My mom's side of the family comes from Norway. Grandma's maiden name is Hellebust, and her mother before her was Vassenden. It's a bit more difficult to trace the males of course. You know, with the rapes and all.
Not sure if "bust" means anything, but my girlfriends name is Helle, and it means "holy". Vassenden roughly translates to "where waters run deep"
Enjoying your little forum community thus far boy and girls
Last name is Engwall. Don't know if it means anything in Swedish but apparently it means tiny wall in German.
Always found it interesting how they went from this historically violent culture to the social democracy deal they have going on these days. Interesting progression.
Yeah, doesn't mean anything in particual in Norwegian.
Christianity happened. I don't think I would hold up well to Viking standards. I guess what I'm saying is I'm thankful for Christianity... Even typing that felt weird
An excellent intro, and an example to any who would wish to be welcomed warmly into the Destructoid community. I think in all fairness, you could have placed Morrowind in with the other popular games most gamers like, let's be fair here, it's harder to find a gamer who dislikes Morrowind than it is to find people who love it.
Also, thanks to your ancestors for discovering the land I was born into and currently reside. Any pussy can sail over on a Mayflower, it takes real men to row across the Atlantic in a fucking longship. (I'm aware they mostly kept to the shoreline whenever possible, but that is entirely beside the point)
