Origin of the name HALDOR.
Etymology of the name HALDOR.
Meaning of the baby name HALDOR.

  

HALDOR.  A variant form of Old Norse Hallthórr (q.v.), meaning "stone of Thor."  It has the feminine Haldora.  Also see Haldur and Halldor.  Usage:  Denmark, Norway. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

    Haldor Snorrason and Ulf Uspakson, as before related, came to Norway with King Harald.  They were, in many respects, of different dispositions.  Haldor was very stout and strong, and remarkably handsome in appearance.  King Harald gave him this testimony, that he, among all his men, cared least about doubtful circumstances, whether they betokened danger or pleasure; for, whatever turned up, he was never in higher nor in lower spirits, never slept less nor more on account of them, nor ate or drank but according to his custom.  Haldor was not a man of many words, but short in conversation, told his opinion bluntly and was obstinate and hard; and this could not please the king, who had many clever people about him zealous in his service.  Haldor remained a short time with the king; and then came to Iceland, where he took up his abode in Hjardarholt, and dwelt in that farm to a very advanced age... (The Heimskringla: A History of the Norse Kings, Sturlason-Laing, 1907)
