Happy Name Day, Erik! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

Today we honor Erik.  Happy Name Day, Erik!
The name Eric is of Old Norse origin and means "forever or alone, ruler".  The original form is Erik, which has been borne by nine Danish kings.  Scandinavian legend relates that the Viking sea rover Ericson (son of Eric the Red) landed on the shores of America 500 years before Christopher Columbus.
