Comments on Igor:

The name is of Slavic origin not Norse, we have other names such as Jago, Jagomir, Jagos and Jagor which is derived from a flower of the same name + a feminine suffix (jagorcevina, jagorcika). Also Ivor is Slavic deriving from the word ‘javor’ (marple tree). Both names occur in Serbian.

I enjoy the resounding boom this name has. You certainly wouldn’t forget meeting a boy named Igor.
