Comments for SOL (1):

This name means also "the Sun", in Norwegian. One female character in the Norwegian book series "The Tale About The Ice People" bears this name.

Sól is the Norse goddess of the sun and the sister of the moon (Måne). The name is the same as the Norwegian word for "sun" -- "The sun" would in Norwegian be Solen or Sola, both are correct, and in Spanish it is "el Sol", which is masculine.

PS: There are 368 women in Norway with Sol as their first given name, 111 women in
Norway has this as their only given name. I am Norwegian and love Sol- names.

Simply means 'Sun' in Norwegian. This was used in the book series "Sagaen Om Isfolket", her name was Sol Angelica, the books is called "The LEGEND OF The Ice People" in English (NOT tale about)!

Sol Kelly Jones, an eighteen year old girl who has been speaking out publicly against gay marriage bans since she was ten, is probably one of the most recognizable Sols there is just now. (At least, she is for Wisconsinites.) Her mothers found her name in the Norwegian story Vaeltaa refers to -- they liked the symbolism the sun could have, and the fact that the name could fit a boy or a girl.

I recently met someone called Jen Sol. I thought it was cool, unusual name.

Sol also means "the sun" in Swedish. It's a unique name here!

Sol does not mean the sun in Swedish, sol means sun in Swedish. The sun is solen in Swedish.

Dunno if this counts as a "famous bearer" per se. But you know how stars (suns) have names, like Alpha Proximi and Sirius and Betelgeuse and stuff? Our sun is called Sol.

In Roman myths Sol was the god of the sun. Like Helios and Apollo were for the Greeks.

Can be a short form of Marisol.

Sol is the name of a daughter of the Argentine footballer Javier Zanetti.

In Spanish it is used as a feminine name because of the Marian title Nuestra Señora del Sol (Our Lady of the Sun).

I've been checking over my previous comments and I haven't been able to find such a Marian title. However I did discover that in the Cantar de Mio Cid (a Spanish epic poem written sometime between 1195-1207) one of El Cid's daughters is called Sol. The other is called Elvira. This could have inspired some of the usage of Sol in contemporary Spain, though it could just be used as a nature name in reference to the sun, similar to Luna ("moon").

"Sol" only means "Sun" in Spanish, not "the sun". Also it means "sun" in Catalan.

I love this name. I would like to name my daughter like this. Also if you read the etimology of this ancient word you will like it more.
