Göran is George in Swedish?

Yep. We also have the name Georg but Göran is a variant.

One of the most famous Swedes here was Sven-Göran Eriksson, and I'm not even a footbal fan...
I wonder what the Sven is for?

stromsjo said...

When two persons who don't care much for football are discussing a particular team coach - I suppose that's one measure of celebrity status!

The name Sven really goes way back as long as there is recorded history. In fact...

svensk means
Swedish (as in being from or related to Sweden)

svenska means Swedish (the language)

plenty more from Stockholm, Sweden - click on photos to enlarge!
