Nordraflür

from Debbie Scott.

Nordraflür

My guess is it’s corrupted Norwegian for "northbound flight". But how did the "ü" end up in there?

Nordraflür

Debbie’s own explanation:
"It was a name my grandfather gave to the family home. He built it over an old existing steading. It is the most northern building in a very small area of croft houses called "Da Biggins" and he meant it to mean "north floor". In Papa (Stour) we tend to pronounce floor a bit like "fluy-ir". In the past, we have tended to just "add an umlaut" to show it’s a strangely pronounced vowel sound, not very academic! I tend to spell it Nordrafluir nowadays."
