Etymology of the name OLAF.
Meaning of the baby name OLAF.


OLAF.  Scandinavian.  From Old Norse Óláfr (q.v.), meaning "forefather's relic." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... In the year 852 Olaf the White reached Ireland with a large fleet, and founded a Scandinavian principality at Dublin...
    The Scandinavian name Anleifr, Álefer, Óláfr was rendered by Anláf in the Saxon Chronicle, and by Amhlabh in the Irish Chronicles; thus Righ Amhlab was King Olaf the White in Dublin.
    Olaf was a royal name in Man, and must at one time have been common.
    Aumond M'Olave was Bishop of Man from A.D. 1077-1100, and Olaf or Olave, son of Godred Crovan, commenced his reign in 1102 or 1113. (Manx Names; or, The Surnames and Place-names of the Isle of Man, Moore, 1906)
