Bluetooth a Bind-Rune Drawn from Norse Myth

By: redicecreations.com

The Bluetooth symbol is a bind-rune, which means that it is formed from two runes that are merged together. Runes are the ancient Norse letters that, according to mythology, Odin discovered and gave to gods and humans. Runes have been used for over thousand years (probably a lot longer). They were letters (used to spell things) and symbols (each symbol stood for a specific word or concept). Harald Bluetooth (circa 935-985) united Denmark under his rule; the Bluetooth technology unites different devices under its “rule.”

If you take the rune for “H”

and combine it with the rune for “B”

you get the Bluetooth logo
