Note to Eyv Hák 9I

[1] dǫglingar ‘kings’: In Skm (SnE 1998, I, 103), Snorri explains Daglingar or Dǫglingar as descendants of Dagr, a legendary king, but this is unlikely (LP: dǫglingr). Höfler (1952a, 33-7) argues that the word is to be connected with the personified Dagr ‘Day’ mentioned in Vafþr 25/2 (NK 49) and SnE 2005, 13. Sahlgren (1927-8, I, 89) proposes that the word describes the sons of Eiríkr rather than Hákon, but cf. Wolf (1969, 19).
