Angerboda[edit]

Angerboda, which is her name in normal English (I strongly disagree with this overly pedantic and quasi-scholarly fad of spelling), is perhaps better translated as "anger-bidder", where 'anger' has its original meaning as 'sorrow' —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sparviere (talkcontribs) 14:34, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

This may be the case but a reference is required for the etymology to go on the article. As for the spelling, there is good reason for it. Check out: Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Norse mythology). :bloodofox: (talk) 18:42, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
