Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun – Write your name in Viking runes

Each week on Randy Seaver’s Genea-musings blog he has a post for Saturday night Genealogy fun.  Because of the time difference, I have called my series Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun.  This week, the mission was

 1) My friend and CVGS colleague Karen Y. found this fun website –  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/ancient/write-your-name-in-runes.html.  So click on the “Launch Interactive” button, enter your name, or some phrase of your choice, and see how it looks in runes.  

2)  I thought it would be ideal for a fun and fast SNGF project.  You can impress your friends and grandchildren with it, and maybe it will be a chart-storm on Facebook.


3)  Share your runic names or phrases with us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this post, in a Facebook post or a Google+ post.  Please provide a link to your response if you can.
