Viking Runes Text Translations Page

Write your name or other words in the runes of the Elder Futhark by using the  translator  below:

Tips: Write words phonetically, and skip double and silent letters. This script does not include the blank rune.

Examples: "Chrissy" should be written "KRISY".
"Cynthia" should be written "SYNTHIA"
"Ralph" should be written "RALF".
"Thomas" should be written "TOMAS", but "Thad" would be written "THAD".
"Book" should be written "BOK".
"Write" and "Wright" should be written as "RIT".

CH, as in "Chuck", will appear as Kenaz Jera. KJ is the closest approximation in Scandinavian languages.
EI will appear as Eihwaz.
J and Y will appear as Jera.
NG will appear as Ingwaz.

TH will appear as Thurisaz.
V will appear as the runic W because V and W are interchangeable in Scandinavian languages.

The javascript used here does not not insert spaces or punctuation. Many of the ancient rune stones were written in continuous script with no spaces or punctuation. You may insert spaces if you wish.
