Name Meaning

This Christian name was a personal name borne by many Scandinavian monarchs. Some derive it from Latin "magnus," meaning great, but it would seem to come from the name of Charlemagne, whose name in Icelandic is written as "Karla-magnus." Charlemagne is derived from Karlmann, signifying "strong man."
