We could indeed keep an eye on these. They are interesting, even if a bit different from other place names in Skyrim. They may useful to make up names for caves and barrows.

Feel free to create names after liking, I'd say. Atmospheric names are always good to have in the reserve. :)

I think the best way to do it, is to not nick Norse names completely but use inspiration from them and 'Skyrimify' them a bit.
