As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bráð-björg (bráð-bjǫrg)
- (commonly proncd. blóð-berg, n.), f. thyme, Hjalt., Björn.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bráð-björg may be more accurately written as bráð-bjǫrg.
