About Olaf

Go back to names list

The male name Olaf originates from the Old Norse word ‘anleifr’ which means ‘descendent of the family’. This is made up of the two Old Norse elements of ‘anu’, meaning ancestor and ‘leifr’, meaning descendent. Although the name has belonged to many kings it is most famous for Olaf Haraldsson who was later named Saint Olaf.
