The Icelandic author who bore this name was NOT named Snorri Sturluson, his name was Snorre Sturlason.

I don't know why someone is claiming that the Icelander Snorri Sturlason was actually called Snorre. The Icelandic form of the name was and is Snorri with an i. I live in Iceland and speak Icelandic and can testify to this. You may have seen Snorre written on his book Heimskringla, which mostly deals with Norwegian history. Snorri is traditionally known as Snorre in Norway and older English publications may have followed that tradition. However, he was always Snorri in his native Iceland.

Looks like and reminds me of "snotty". Very unusual name. I don't think I'd like to name anybody this. Not even a stuffed animal walrus.

I don't really like this name, it makes me think of umpleasant things, like snores and snot and snooty people. But anyway, we all have different opinions.

Ha! This is an awesome name. I'm naming the next stuffed animal I get Snorri. But I wouldn't ever use this name for a real person.

I think it's a weird but really cute name. I wouldn't bother with it for my son.

The name (female!) of a character in Angie Sage's Septimus Heap series. Convinced he was going to have a son, her father put down in his will that she would be called Snorri. Rather obviously, he died and thus Snorri was given the name!

It's cute, but not in real life.

Actually, you know what Snorri sounds like? One of the seven dwarfs from Snow White!

Snorri Hjartarson was an Icelandic poet, and a winner of the Nordic Council's Literature Prize. Snorri was born in Hvanneyri, Borgarfjörður. He lived in Norway for a long time and studied art at the Art Academy of Oslo under the direction of Axel Revold from 1931 to 1932. His first publication was a novel written in Norwegian in 1934, but he is known for his poetry books in Icelandic. He was awarded the Nordic Council Literature Prize in 1981 for his poetry collection Hauströkkrið yfir mér. Snorri was a librarian at the Reykjavik City Library after he moved back to Iceland. From 1942-1966 he served as City Librarian, taking over the post from Sigurgeir Friðriksson.
