What is Norse?

Norse, as defined by Merriam-Webster, relates to medieval Norway or Scandinavia, or the language of its inhabitants.

Medieval Norsemen were known for their mythology: a religion practiced at the time. These stories were used to help them better understand the world around them.

Are Norse and Viking the Same?

The words “Viking” and “Norse” both refer to the Germanic people living in Scandinavia at the time of the Viking Age, and are often used interchangeably.

“Norse” usually refers to Norsemen (people who spoke Old Norse and practiced a pagan religion) who were full-time traders, and Vikings usually refers to people who were actually farmers but were also, occasionally and when needed, warriors led by people of noble birth.

Okay, that’s your history lesson, let’s talk now about what we are all here for–cat names!
