Since many of my ancestors are Norwegians I think I should explain about their naming practices. When a child is born they receive a given name. My great grandfather, for example, was given the name Sjur. The child was also named after the father. If it was a boy you would add a –son to the given name of the child’s father and if it was a daughter you would add –datter to the father’s name. My great grandfather’s father’s name was Marcus, so my great grandfather’s name was Sjur Markusson. Finally a third name would be used. Since most Norwegians were farmers, the name of the farm they lived or worked at would be added to their first two names. My great grandfather was born and raised on the Dyrdal farm. His name then was Sjur Markusson Dyrdal. It is kind of like an address; Sjur the son of Markus of the Dyrdal farm. Click this link
