Harold

A Scandinavian name. Harold was once a prominent name in Dublin, as attested by the area called Harold's Cross, and the name is still found in the region. A fictional Harold family of Norwegian Vikings appears in four chapters of the first book of Edward Rutherfurd's Irish saga, including one who went on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
