As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- blá-tönn (blá-tǫnn)
- f. a cognom. having a blue, black tusk, Fas. ii. 390.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, blá-tönn may be more accurately written as blá-tǫnn.
