His teeth weren't blue. Blåtand in old Viking describes a person with very dark hair and dark complexion. He was a "people's person - a great enabler and facilitator. He made people talk to each other. He brought Christianity to Scandinavia. He united Denmark and Norway.

Bluetooth is named "Bluetooth" after the Danish viking king, Harald Blåtand. Blåtand, translated to English, literally means Bluetooth. If you split the Bluetooth symbol in two, there's a Runic inscription. It may look like a B with two lines out the back, but those lines out the back form the Runic letter H. The B is, of course, the Runic version of our present-day B. Hence, Harald Blåtand.

It is because, according to legend, King Harald loved to eat blueberries that stained his teeth... and so he was brought with byname "bluetooth". Moreover, Jim Kardach (who developed the idea of intercommunicating mobile phones with personal computers) was currently fond of reading history legend novels about Denmark, Norway, and King Harald who was noted by Danish legend as the king who united the dissonant Danish tribes. Simply connect the dots... Bluetooth was born. (I . Thanks!) Yoe Derboy I love u much mah boy!


Bluetooth started as the code name when it was first formed. The name Bluetooth is from the 10th century Danish King Harald Blatand - or Harold Bluetooth in English. King Blatand united warring factions in parts of what is now Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Bluetooth technology is designed to allow collaboration between differing industries such as the computing, mobile phone and automotive markets.

Bluetooth is an open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short length radio waves) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security. Invented by telecoms vendor Ericsson in 1994, it was originally conceived as a wireless alternative to RS-232 data cables. It can connect several devices, overcoming problems of synchronization. Today Bluetooth is managed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. The word Bluetooth is an anglicised version of Danish Blåtand, the epithet of the tenth-century king Harald I of Denmark and parts of Norway who united dissonant Danish tribes into a single kingdom. The implication is that Bluetooth does the same with communications protocols, uniting them into one universal standard, Although blå in modern Scandinavic languages means blue, during the Viking age it also could mean black. So a historically correct translation of Old Norse Harald Blátönn could rather be Harald Blacktooth than Harald Bluetooth. The Bluetooth logo is a bind rune merging the Germanic runes H-rune.(Hagall) and Runic letter berkanan.(Berkanan).


Danish King Bluetooth was key in uniting parts of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway when they were at war. Bluetooth technology was named after the king as it was designed to unite products and technologies through a unified form of connectivity.
