Most common family names (hint: all end in -sen) Well, 2-3, but 5? It's useless.

I'm no good with them either. Never been to Europe, and never really thought much of it compared to other continents, so that certainly doesn't help.

All 5 of those are fairly common here in the US, at least in my neck of the woods (lots of Scandinavians in MN!).

Somehow all I could think about was the Lofoten archipelago and I was certain the Quizmaster had misspelled it so I tried every possible variation of that word. Svalbard never even crossed my mind. I feel silly now.

That's 5040 possibilities, you must be the fastes typer on this quiz, or did you run out of time? BTW, I guessed Lofoten too.

As a Norwegian I feel sad for forgetting Sonja Hennie and Erik the Red.... also forgot the English word for biathlon.

I am watching a biathlon competition on tv right now while taking this quiz :) Took me too many seconds to remember the word even when I can see the word "IBU world cup" right in front of me. Just couldn't remember what B stands for (did it finally though).

For Scandinavians, this is no doubt a no-brainer, but for someone from the U.S., I feel just a tiny bit shrewd for noticing that if names end in -sen, they're likely from either Norway or Denmark, but if they end in -son, they're likely from Sweden. No idea why, but that's the pattern I've noticed, with very few exceptions.
