What is Your Scandinavian Name?

National Name Yourself Day is observed each year on April 9. To celebrate, you are allowed to give yourself a new name for one day. To help you find a new name, we have created the easy as 1-2-3 “How To Create Your New Scandinavian Name”:

1. Take the first 3 letters of your first name + “uffda”
2. The last think you ate + “sson”
3. Take the first 3 letters of your last name + “tefiskström”

For example (envisioning the last thing they ate) you would get:

Abraham Lincoln = Abruffda Chickensson Lintefiskström
Betty White = Betuffda Eggsson Whitefiskström
Stephen Colbert = Steuffda Pancakesson Coltefiskström
Vladimir Putin = Vlauffda Vodkasson Puttefiskström

Or you can buy “A Handbook of Scandinavian Names” by Nancy L. Coleman and Olav Veka – I mean Nanuffdah Cookiesson Coltefiskström and Olav Veka (you can’t improve on that).
