----------------------

I for Ivar - my first name

Ivar is a male name. Can be used as both first and middle name, originating in the Norse name Ívarr, formed by the Norse words ýr, "yew"(norsk: Barlind), and harjaR, "warrior".

In Norway 6732 men have just 'Ivar' as their first name. My name day is January 31.

My blog name is Ivar Ivrig, and 'Ivrig' means 'eager' ;-)

I for Image. Here is one shot by me this autumn:

  1. Is that the natural coloring in the bottom photo? That's an amazing photo--the field being so close to the shore. Is that a bridge I see on the right?

    And that picture (haven't I seen that before?) is just plain beautiful.

  8. I enjoyed your post for today. I liked the picture of the straw all rolled up and the field a golden yellow.

    I also like the explanation of your name. That is interesting to me. My name, Abraham, means: Father of a multitude. and we did have 5 children. The oldest three are 50 or older. The youngest is 37. Anyway, my wife put a stop to my fathering business.

  9. Ah... seeing your Ipod reminded me to grab mine and recharge it as it was pretty low on my morning walk today so that was handy! Thanks!
    And your golden field photo is splendid!

  20. I believe the Scandinavian people put much more into their naming than we do here in the UK - there is so much meaning incorporated

    Stunning photos in your blog including this harvest one

  26. What pretty place it has a lot of the same as North Idaho.

    I thought the name (Ivar) was interesting.
    I have no ideal how many people have my given name of Dora.
    I never heard of name day either.

    Interesting bales, what are they?

    My I is up and if you have time stop over for a cup of coffee.
