For good English, all occurrences here of 'Ohthere from Hålogaland' should be changed to 'Ohthere of Hålogaland'. Also, I've added two Fact requests. One is for the idea that Ohthere's account includes the "earliest known written source for the terms "Norway" and "Denmark"": the source is good, and it seems to be true for Denmark, but what about Norway? The other is for where he might have lived. Nortonius (talk) 13:53, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
I suspect that the "Cwenas" would refer to the Finns. I've seen the terms "Kven" and "Kvenland" used synonymously with "Finn" and "Finland"- meaning alternately "land ruled by women" or "land of swamps". The many lakes of Finland would merit the second title. I'm surprised that no one else has spotted the connection, but I'm not familiar with the term Beorm, as yet. Very bear-y sounding. "Kvenland" can be found elsewhere here on wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:06, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
