I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I think we should translate the names of the Norse gods into Nynorn. I have been checking up on the phonological changes of Shetland Norn and based my suggestions upon them. So, tell me what you think or if this has been presented before.

Key: English name, Norse name - Shetland Nynorn name

Odin, Óðinn - Odinn
Thor, Þórr - Tur (?, I know tjordin means thunder so this one is questionable)
Loki, Loki - Loki (stays the same)
Balder, Baldr - Bald (bald means bold, so this one is easy)
Frey, Freyr - Frø (?)
Tyr, Týr - Tør (?)
Bragi, Bragi - Bragi
Ull, Ullr - Ull
Njord, Njørðr - Njørð (since "rð" makes an "rd" sound, I preserved the "ð")
Freya, Freyja, - Frøja
Vali, Váli - Våli (probably self-explanatory)
Hoenir, Hœnir - Høni (I took out the "r" because weak nouns end in just "i")

I know there's many more, but that's a good list for now...

Tell me what you think. Dakk.

Here's my suggestions with only few changes:

Odin, Óðinn - Oden
Thor, Þórr - Tur
Loki, Loki - Loki
Balder, Baldr - Balder (-er is part of the root)
Frey, Freyr - Frø
Tyr, Týr - Tør
Bragi, Bragi - Bragi
Ull, Ullr - Ull
Njord, Njørðr - Njørð
Freya, Freyja, - Frøja
Vali, Váli - Våli
Hoenir, Hœnir - Høner

Njørð seems the more proper one, yes, I agree. He's called Njørður in Faroese too, so...
