The reindeer's name was originally given as "Dunder," which corresponded to Blitzen's original name, "Blixem." "Dunder" and "Blixem" mean "Thunder" and "Lightning."
the seventh reindeer in Santa's sleigh is Donner. remember the song about all of the names of the reindeer. actually that person^ was wrong is it donder meaning lightning in greek i believe alot of people say donner that is not correct! its donder..
The reindeer named Donner. Thor was the Germanic peoples name for the god of thunder, translated as donder.
Donner is one of Santas reindeer, but not Bonner.
Two of the reindeer names, Donner/Donder and Blitzen, are often the source of confusion, misspelling, and misinformation. The short facts are these: Donner/Donder and Blitzen were named ''Dunder'' and ''Blixem'' (the Dutch words for ''thunder'' and ''lightning'') in the original printing of "A Visit From St. Nicholas." In reprints of the poem, the names became ''Donder'' and ''Blixen,'' then ''Donder'' and ''Blitzen'' (the latter being German for ''lightning''). By the time Johnny Marks wrote "Rudolph," it was ''Donner'' and ''Blitzen'' (possibly because ''Donder'' was musically awkward). See Snopes.com for a thorough discussion.
There are eight reindeer. If you count Rudolph, then there are nine. The eight reindeer are: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen (which means thunder and lightning in German). Note: some say Donder instead of Donner.Two of Santa's reindeer were originally named "Dunder" and "Blixem," not "Donner' and 'Blitzen."

No Dancer Is The Original Reindeer.
While some northern European traditions associated St. Nicolas with a sleigh and reindeer for transportation, the idea of Santa and his eight original reindeer appear to have come primarily from Clement Moore's "A Visit From St. Nicholas." Written in 1823, it gives the names of Santa's team as Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen. "Donder" would later become "Donner." Rudolph was added in the mid-twentieth century due to the popularity of the song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
