Origin and Meaning

VIK with an -ingr-ending:

VíkingR is the Old Norse word for the Scandinavian warriors, who raided and often settled in territories of northwest Europe from the 8th to the 11th century [1] [2] [3]

The word derives from the Old Norse word vík = 'bay, inlet, small creek', referring either to their home fjords from which they came or to the creeks in which they landed to carry out their plundering. [4]

Another (less certain) theory links it with the Old English word wíc = 'dwelling, camp', referring to the encampments that they set up in the territories where they landed. [4]
