Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Write Your Name in Viking Runes

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 
time for some more Genealogy Fun!!



Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

1) My friend and CVGS colleague Karen Y. found this fun website -  
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/ancient/write-your-name-in-runes.html.  So click on the "Launch Interactive" button, enter your name, or some phrase of your choice, and see how it looks in runes.  

2)  I thought it would be ideal for a fun and fast SNGF project.  You can impress your friends and grandchildren with it, and maybe it will be a chart-storm on Facebook.

3)  Share your runic names or phrases with us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this post, in a Facebook post or a Google+ post.  Please provide a link to your response if you can.

Here's mine:

a)  Randy Seaver:



2)  Here's a mystery phrase - what does it say?


Enjoy!
