  1. We first heard the name Bj?rn while watching Vikings and we both thought it was really cool. It means Bear in Danish. My husband’s grandmother is directly from Denmark and I thought it would be cool to have a name that would carry on his heritage. Before I was even pregnant or before we chose the name, we always said we would do a woodland creature nursery theme for a boy. So of course we have bears everywhere! The only thing we were unsure of was the fact that it’s not English so everyone would probably pronounce it with a hard J. In Danish, a J makes a Y sound. Only a few people have so far so that’s not too bad but a lot of people say “Beeyorn” and it’s really annoying lol

  2. My husband actually chose the name Bjorn. He was watching a movie and that’s how he learned of that name. I’m all about names having a great meaning to hopefully positively impact and motivate a child. However, I’m not a big fan of the meaning of Bjorn. It means “bear”. I mention it to someone and they said, “wow, that means strong” and I was like, “well, that’s a positive spin, I guess we can say it means strong…strong like a bear…lol.”
    The great thing about Bjorn though is that it fits in well with the theme my husband and I have for naming our children. My husband’s name starts with a B and my name starts with a J and our theme is to have our children’s first names starting with a “B” and their middle names with a “J.” The other cool thing about Bjorn is that our first son’s nickname is BJ and so even though the “j” in Bjorn is pronounced like an “e” I really like that the first two letters spell BJ.
