As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- snörtr (snǫrtr)
- m., gen. snartar, [Ivar Aasen snart = a stick burnt at one end]:—a nickname, Landn.; hence Snartar-tunga, a local name.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, snörtr may be more accurately written as snǫrtr.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛋᚾᚢᚱᛏᚱ
Younger Futhark runes were used from 8th to 12th centuries in Scandinavia and their overseas settlements
