Strange place names

Nordanåteatern, Skellefteå

In Sweden there are many places with strange and seemingly inexplicable names.

Skellefteå Museum's local historian Ulf Lundström has a doctorate in place names in Bureå, Burträsk and Lövånger in the southern part of Skellefteå municipality and has since continued to study names in the northern part. The book is not finished yet, but perhaps he offers some new interesting explanations for places like Slut, Tarsnäs and Stämningsgården.
