Etymology of the name PREDBJORN.
Meaning of the baby name PREDBJORN.

  

PREDBJÖRN.  Modern form of Old Danish Pridbjörn, probably meaning "upright bear."  Also spelled Predbiorn.  See Yonge's note under Preban.

... Sir Bugge, after the architect had left him, said to one of his men, "Go after him and say, 'Master, the tower shakes.'  If he turns round, kill him and take away the money I paid him, but if he does not turn round let him go in peace."  The man did as he was told; the architect did not turn round, but called back "The tower does not shake in the least, but one day a man will come from the west in a blue cloak—he will cause it to shake!"  And so indeed it happened a hundred years later, for the North Sea broke in and cast down the tower; but Predbjörn Gyldenstjerne, the man who then possessed the castle, built a new castle higher up at the end of the meadow, and that one is standing to this day, and is called Nörre-Vosborg. (Stories & Fairy Tales, Andersen-Sommer, 1897).
