I don’t like “Elfdalian” because älv ‘river’ is not alv ‘elf’. (Compare the German river Elbe, Gothic Albi/Albja.) Unfortunately I can’t seem to find a loanword from Norse into English or Scots that corresponds to that word.
Älvdalen is River-dale, not Elf-dale.
Anyway that bugs me but I can get over it.
