The nickname "Loðbrók" refers to an saga about Ragnar that Saxo wrote. In the story, Ragnar dresses himself in a fur coat and fur pants, walks through icy water in order to get the fur frozen. This is to be shielded from two Lindorm (mythical serpents)that have trapped a maiden in her house. Afterwards, the maiden's father mocks Ragnar for having "fuzzy pants", i.e., "Loðbrók". See more
The first Earl of Kategat is referred to as "Haraldson". In fact, the proper way of addressing a Norseman is by their given name, not the second name which is a patronym. This custom still exists in Iceland today. See more
So have you returned to your faith, renounced ours?
I wish it was so simple. In the gentle fall of rain from Heaven I hear my God. But in the thunder I still hear Thor. That is my agony.
I hope that some day our Gods can become friends.
