Origin of the name NJAL.
Etymology of the name NJAL.
Meaning of the baby name NJAL.

  

NJÅL.  Also Njál.  Another form of Old Norse Njáll (q.v.), from Gaelic Niul (q.v.), meaning "champion."

    In the Landnama Bok, the Domesday Book of Iceland, no less than three Njals appear, and the Njalssaga, the history of the noble-spirited yet peaceful Icelander, who, even in the tenth century, had never shed blood, and preferred rather to die with his sons than to live to avenge them, is one of the finest histories that have come down to us from any age. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
