Name Type:

Meaning: There is only one early documentary attestation, and is likely to be a mis-transcription of Grianal. If this source form is valid, however, it appears on the face of it to be ON grænn ‘green’ with ON vík ‘bay’ (see Grianal below).
There is a Grianaig on Kintyre (SP), and Grønevik is a common name in Norway (NG).
