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.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
