Old Norse Gunnólfr (m.)
Gunnólfr is a common name throughout Scandinavia. Although it is not well attested in the Icelandic sagas, there are many instances of the personal name in medieval Scandinavian documents as well as in the Icelandic quasi-historical text Landnámabók ‘The Book of Settlements’, which recounts the settlement of Iceland.
The personal name also occurs in its Old East Norse form, Gunnulf, as the first element in the place-name Gonalston, Nottinghamshire.
