List Criteria: Vote up the names that are the most badass, brutal, and perfectly "Viking" in all of Norse history.

Fans of History's Vikings know there were a ton of badass Viking names like Ragnar Lodbrok and Bjorn Ironside. But that's just scratching the surface: there are a lot of hardcore Norse names from history the show hasn't referenced yet, but hopefully some day will, because, well, they're seriously awesome. We're talking about f*ck yeah Viking war handles like "Thorir the Troll-Burster" and awesome Viking epithets like "Asbjorn Muscle of Orrastead." And yes: all of the badass warrior sobriquets below are 100% real. Get on your voting shoes and behold the majesty of the Vikings.
