Abstract [en]

Andersön is the name of the third largest island in Lake Storsjön in Jämtland, Mid-Scandinavia. The name has previously been considered as medieval, being composed of the Christian male name Andreas (Andres, Anders) and ON øy 'island'. However, this interpretation is not congruent with the oldest attested form of the name, Undursey, known from Sverris saga. In this paper it is argued that the name contains the word ON undurn, undorn, designating a point of time between noon and evening (or between morning and noon). According to the author the name is prehistoric and means 'the island over which the sun is at undurn'.
