EtymologyEdit

From Old Norse bjarnvardsvaka (literally Bjarnvard's wake). The former part is named after Barnardino of Siena (1380–1444), but was later reanalyzed as bjørn (bear). The latter is equivalent to vòke, from vǫku, the oblique singular of Old Norse vaka.

NounEdit

bjørnevok f (definite singular bjørnevoka, indefinite plural bjørnevoker, definite plural bjørnevokene)

  1. feast of St Bernardine (held on May 20)
