Naming customs of descendants were a part of Norse life. In some cases, noble families (or wannabee nobles) claimed a god as their clan father as a means of legitimizing their nobility. In other cases, a deceased ancestor might order a given course of events, including the naming of a baby. One could also, in trance, contact ancestors for advice or help.
