Reply to: "Fastolf" and Gegn" (Old English/ Old Norse?) by "Bagpus"
Fastolf derives from the Old Norse name FastĂșlfr ('fast' = fast, strong, firm + 'Ășlfr' = wolf)

Gegn looks like the Old English original form of the Old Norse name Gegnir. (Old English 'gegn' = against, opposite [= opponent, enemy])
