Close enough that I barely need a translator to know what it means. But it's closer to Icelandic ;)

Well, I think most "old Norse" stuff is basically "old Icelandic." Plus, it may not quite mean what it appears to mean, but since I don't know modern Icelandic, I can't say for sure. Near as I can tell, the "official," actual meaning of mein is pain, hurt, or illness, but the Christians adopted it to mean "sin" once they came around (which is the meaning I was actually going for). Kind of like how they had to use the Greek word for "miss" (as in, missing the mark) for sin. Weird, huh?

Meini means either to damage or to hurt; or to prevent or avoid in Icelandic. And Dauðr means dead in Old Norse.

But hey, it can mean whatever you want it to :P

Dauðr is actually rather close to the Danish "død" in pronunciation ("død" also means dead), though it is spelled differently.

And so ends todays language lesson :P

Well, meini is the dative of mein in Old Norse. So... "to/for [pain, harm, disease, (sin)]" ... kinda. The whole thing together would then be "dead to sin." In Old Norse. Modified by Christian influence.

most of it is out of joking around, some find him very sexy, others fear the viking, others have just known him for so long.

If people don;t really like him for real, they just need to get over it ;)

I have a temper and a knack for being blunt; not the most endearing characteristics ;) But generally, Shaggy is right. My feelings towards the people of SWE are pretty much exactly as my signature quote ;)

Oh, and Mir and I are friends, we just like to bash one another. ;)
