EtymologyEdit

The name was first attested in 1194 as Old Norse Svalbarði, from svalr (cold) + barð (edge, ridge, turf, beard), thus roughly meaning “cold shore,” probably alluding to the treeless landscape mostly covered with grass, although there is uncertainty as to what the name originally referred to.
