As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- djörfung (djǫrfung)
- f. [djarfr], boldness, in a good sense, Fms. iv. 133, Pass. 40. 17: impudence, Fms. ii. 184, H. E. i. 503: cp. dirfð, dirfska.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, djörfung may be more accurately written as djǫrfung.
