As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- morgun-gjöf (morgun-gjǫf)
- f. [Dan. morgen-gave, Germ. morgen-gabe], a bridal gift, made by the bridegroom to his bride on the morning after the wedding, Fas. i. 345; cp. bekkjargjöf.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, morgun-gjöf may be more accurately written as morgun-gjǫf.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛘᚢᚱᚴᚢᚾ-ᚴᛁᚢᚠ
