To "go a-viking" means to go raiding. "Viking was originally a Norse term describing a raid for loot and only later came to describe the Norse people who did that.

What was the name for the vikings before Vikings?

The vikings were just a title or description used only for the people who went aviking. A farmer during the viking age was not a viking. He was a farmer. And most people during that time were farmers. a fletcher was a fletcher, a blacksmith a blacksmith, and if someone went aviking, they were a viking. To go aviking meant to go on raid expedition. Vikings were of Scandinavian origins and the Scandinavians were collectively referred to as "normanni" (norsemen) by western chroniclers at the time. Eastern chroniclers called them "varangians". The scandinavians themselves were divided in many tribes. They collectively sometimes referred to themselves as "norroenir menn" (northern men).


Were there girl vikings?

Where there females around during the Viking Age? Of course. Did women go aviking? Not generally. A Viking was a person who went on a trading and raiding voyage. Women, so far as I know, never went. One might argue that there were women on Leif Erikson's voyage when he discovered North America, but he was not going aviking. Not that was a voyage of exploration, not for trade or raid.
