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

  

THUNOR, ÞUNOR.  The Anglo-Saxon form of Old Norse Þorr/Thor, meaning "thunder."

... Most of the poetical sources depict Odin as the chief of the gods, as the Allfather of gods and men, while the prose writings contain frequent indications that Thor, the Thunder-god (Anglo-Saxon Thunor) stands highest of all in the popular estimation.  There can be no doubt that the Sagas are right with regard to their own territory.  The frequent occurrences of proper names compounded with Thor (such as Thorolf, Thorstein, etc.) testifies to his importance in Scandinavia, especially as we are told that a name compounded with that of a god was esteemed a safeguard to its bearer... (The Cambridge Medieval History, Bury, 1913)
