Hi again,

There's a Viking "Ragnarr Loðbrók". You probably mean him?
Loðbrók is a byname and means "loden breeches, woollen trousers"

Concerning Wafenia (Waveney) I've found this site:

http://www.ling.ed.ac.uk/linguist/issues/12/12-3151.html

saying:

...the river Waveney, whose name elements *wagen 'quagmire' and ea 'river'...

I cannot see a connection between the river and the Viking though...

Regards,
Satu
