As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- baldrskinns-hökull (baldrskinns-hǫkull)
- m., literally a surplice of b., Ám. 87.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, baldrskinns-hökull may be more accurately written as baldrskinns-hǫkull.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛒᛅᛚᛏᚱᛋᚴᛁᚾᚾᛋ-ᚼᚢᚴᚢᛚᛚ
Younger Futhark runes were used from 8th to 12th centuries in Scandinavia and their overseas settlements
