Note to Þjóð Lv 2I

[4] Górøðr ‘Guðrøðr’: Son of King Haraldr hárfagri ‘Fair-hair’ and foster-son of Þjóðólfr. Although the mss give the first element of his name as Guð-, the variant form Górøðr, with compensatory lengthening upon loss of ð in Goðrøðr (ANG §§123, 292), is required by the aðalhending with stóran ‘big, swollen, stormy’.
