I like Swedish names, but sometimes I wonder if these are just plain weird. When one Swede becomes famous, so do many of their relatives.
To be Swedish, one must be careful of the spelling of their surname.
People from Sweden like to hear about what the Swedes are doing these days. It means nothing to what they are really doing. Swedish names mean more to the Swedes than anything outside the area where Sweden is located, and so they are often associated with their country.
We want you to take us with you. We want to tell you stories by the Swedish name you share with those closest to you. But we don’t want to bore you, so we will try to tell you the truth about Swedish names.
Swedes know it takes some time for us to get our feet wet, as we all have our own reasons for liking and disliking the way our names end up, but after a week or so, we will no longer feel embarrassed at all.
