Tove
Pronounced:

As a name, Tove is the Scandinavian form of the Old Norse name "Tófa" so it certainly has long roots in the Nordic region! "Tófa" itself was derived from the Norse words for "Beautiful Thor" where Thor was the word for thunder but also the name of the Norse god of strength, thunder and war. I certainly think "beautiful thunder" has a certain ring to it and can think of one or two young ladies that I have met that can go from beautiful to thunder in a moment!

Tove is also a name which has huge resonance for all Finns since it is the first name of probably our most famous author, Tove Jansson. Her most famous literary creations were the Moomins who have achieved worldwide fame but she was also responsible for many other books and works of art. I absolute adore the Moomins and even now like to think I have some similarities to the character Little My!
I'm going to the mall with Tove. Give her a call to see if she can pick you up.
