When was Norway named Norway?
The first time Norway is mentioned with a name in historical sources, it was still an undefined area. When the chieftain and explorer Ottar met the king of England in the 9th century, his story of the homeland was written down. He calls it Norðvegr, which is directly translated to "north way", not so far from "Norway". Here, the word has evolved into "Noreg", and I suppose that the Dano-Norwegian "Norge" is the Danish version.

Fjords, mountains, (a lot of) trees, farms, long coast-line, fish (salmon), snow, skiing, glaciers, moose (american) = elk (european). Aha, Petter Solberg, Madcon, Marion Rav…n, Dennis Storhoi (+++) are some Norwegian celebrities... Moods of Norway...
Norway means "way to the north" which actually makes sence since Norway is very far north. And about a thousand years ago Norway was called "NorÃ°rvegr" which actually means… "way to the north". "NorÃ°rvegr" over time changed to "Norge" or "Noreg" because of the natural change in the language. So basically Norway got itÂ´s name because it means "way to the north"
