Reply to: Pronunciation of Viggo by Sally Sue
Hi Sally Sue,

Viggo is pronounced vi-go in Danish (the i being longer than in Tim but shorter than in Lisa). The stress is on the first syllable.

It is a latinized form of Old Norse names containing Vig- / -vig which means battle and it's a latinization of the Old Norse name Vöggr as well which means to rock/sway (alluding to a person's rolling gait).
