Add this one to the list of great names for mythology buffs. Despite what you might be inclined to think at first, Sif is generally a girl’s name. It comes from Scandinavia; in the old Norse language, “sifjar” meant bride, and Sif is a shortened form of that. In the old tales, Sif was the name of the wife of Thor. She was a fertility goddess in her own right and is best remembered for her beautiful golden hair. However, she’s not a well-known or well-remembered goddess, and perhaps that’s why the name is incredibly uncommon, both in America and around the world.
