 Sigurðr ok Sjólfr (‘s. ok s.’): ‘sig’ ok s.’ 344a, ‘sig’ ok snö’ 343a, ‘sig’. ok si’ 471
: Where they spell out the name Sjólfr (rather than abbreviating it) all mss give some form of the rising diphthong [jo], but all previous eds, except for Edd. Min., restore a two-syllable Sæólfr (OWN *saiwi-wulfaʀ ‘sea-wolf’) in all places where this pers. n. occurs. The situation appears more complex, however, with the Sjólfr form metrically necessary in the present line and in Ǫrv 37/1 and 53/3, the disyllabic form clear in one instance (Ǫrv 40/2), and both forms possible in the remainder (Ǫrv 43/1, 45/1 and 58/8).
