If you've lived in England for a while, you've likely heard some Viking town names. For example, the town of York is actually a combination of two words: eoforwic and jorvik. While you probably don't know the origins of these words, you can probably recognize these elements. For instance, thorpe means a village, keld means spring, nes is a cape, and dale is a valley. You might have heard of a place called Eoforwic or Jorvik, and Shelton was changed to Skelton. The two-word combos have a similar meaning, with eoforwic and jorgvik meaning wild boar settlement, while skelton refers to a farmstead or enclosure.

A place name based on the elements -ala- can mean a farm, hamlet, or sacred place, while dalle means a settlement or clearing near an alder tree. Both dalle and elag are common elements in place names. If you don't know the meaning of a place name, take the quiz and find out! It's fun!
