This is Where Bluetooth Got It's Name & Logo

Have you ever thought about how "Bluetooth" got its name or what the logo means? The answer is fascinating.

The Bluetooth website explains the name dates back to more than a millennia to King Harald "Bluetooth" Gormsson who ruled as kind of Denmark in the year 958. King Harald "Bluetooth" was well known for two things:

  1. Uniting Denmark and Norway in 958
  2. His dead tooth, which was a dark blue/grey color and earned him the nickname "Bluetooth"

According to the Bluetooth website, Bluetooth was only supposed to be a placeholder name.

In 1996, three industry leaders, Intel, Ericsson, and Nokia, met to plan the standardization of this short-range radio technology to support connectivity and collaboration between different products and industries.
During this meeting, Jim Kardach from Intel suggested Bluetooth as a temporary code name. Kardach was later quoted as saying, “King Harald Bluetooth…was famous for uniting Scandinavia just as we intended to unite the PC and cellular industries with a short-range wireless link.”

The logo has a special meaning too. According to the Bluetooth website:

The Bluetooth logo is a bind rune merging the Younger Futhark runes (Hagall) (ᚼ) and (Bjarkan) (ᛒ), Harald’s initials.
