"Loðbrók" is not a family name but a nickname meaning "hairy-breeches", presumably from a habit of wearing fur leggings. Vikings often acquired colorful nicknames derived from personal habits, characteristics or traits. The sagas and histories of Vikings are populated with such figures as Helgi the Leant, Ketil Trout and King Harald Finehair (formerly Harald Shag-hair). One can only speculate as to how difficult it was to be the follower of a man known as Eystein the Foul-Farted (a name recorded in the Icelandic Book of Settlements). See more
