I am curious if anyone has heard of the word "Nos" and knows what it means. In particular I have seen this word at the beginning of a name or title, but have no idea what it means. I know that it is Scandinavian in origin because it is always paired with a word that is of that same origin, for example Nos Freya.
I have searched around and found no reference to it so far. Any ideas???
I don't know your context, but can it possibly be "nous"?
I wonder if it means "our" ?
The closest thing I can come up with is an Old Norse word nǫs meaning nostril. Not the little curly cue at the bottom of the ǫ.
Please give the entire context. Is it modern or from a poem or saga?
Can you quote the original text verbatim in this thread?
The Old Norwegian rune Rhyme includes the word "Nosser" in stanza 15 and Wimmer's translator to English claimed it translated to mean "Jewel". But Wimmer isn't perfect and it doesn't make a lot of sense in context, and it therefore doubtable.
I'm not sure if "nosR" would be an equivalent or not - or even related at all.
