101 Viking Dog Names

Vikings are known for being adventurers and fierce warriors (the name is from the Old Norse "to raid"). Indeed, it's hard to picture a Viking without his/her armor and horned helmet. They exude power and strength, and if you watch the show Vikings, you know they are rather bloodthirsty.
