I have a request from a friend: Can anyone tell me if the name "Gjallahorn" is a Swedish surname? And, if so, what would the name mean in English? Thanks! Karen.:)

Karen,

There is reference to that name in the Norse legend of Ragnarök.

That's the best I can do.:confused: check this, spelling is a bit different http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gjallarhorn

It´s a band too. I remind me, that the house of Swedish speaking students at the University of Technology in Helsinki (Espoo) had that name.
