Name Meaning

from an Old Norse personal name composed of the elements anu ‘ancestor’ + leifr ‘heir, descendant’. St Olaf , King of Norway ( 995–1030 ), aided the spread of Christianity in his kingdom. The name was introduced to Britain before the Norman Conquest, but modern use as a given name in the English-speaking world originated in America, where it was taken by recent Scandinavian immigrants.
