As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- blöku-menn (blǫku-menn)
- m. pl. Walachians, and Blökumanna-land, Walachia, Fms. v. 283; hann sviku Blakumenn í útfaru, Broc. Runstone, p. 179.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, blöku-menn may be more accurately written as blǫku-menn.
