I am looking for the old norse word for blessing if it exists. Can anyone help me with this?
I can't read Old Norse, but isn't this the verb "bless", not the noun "blessing"?
Norrøn ordbok has the following words, both are feminine nouns meaning 'blessing':
Both have the usual number-case-definiteness inflectional forms of Old Norse.
They are derived from the verb bleza 'bless', said to be a loan from Anglosaxon.
All these words have alternative forms with bless rather than blez.
Separate names with a comma.
