Túskalandi ‘Touraine’: Unlike Peita, this p. n. is not recorded in the extant stanzas of Sigv Víkv. Apparently the first element is a gen. pl., ‘of the Túskar’, but who the Túskar are is unknown. LP: Túskaland identifies the place with Touraine, and this has generally been accepted, but the philology of the name remains unclear, and indeed, it is possible that the <u> in the first syllable is short not long.
