When I was looking for a logo for the business due to my heritage I looked to Norse runes and came to ᛈ (Perthro) which seemed highly appropriate….
ᛈ is the rune denoting the sound p in the Elder Futhark runic alphabet.
Pertho is one of the most enigmatic of runes, it’s meaning is unknown and can only be inferred from the Old English Rune Poem which refers to it as ‘ever play and laughter’ where warriors sit in the beer-hall together. The most common meanings assigned are the ‘lot cup’ or ‘gaming piece’ – both referring to games of chance which were taken very seriously by the Germanic peoples as they were believed to reveal the extent of a person’s ‘luck’ (or hamingja). A warrior with luck on his side in the gaming hall was likely to have good fortune on the battle-field too and would be highly prized by his war band.
