Odd (name)

Odd, a name of Old Norse origin (Oddr), the 11th most common male name in Norway. It is rarely used in other countries, though sometimes appearing in other Nordic countries. In old Norse the word means sharp end of an arrow or edge of blade.

Oddur is an Icelandic and Faroese form of the name.

As a curiosity, note that also Even is a common male name in Norway.
