The second Rune of the Second Ætt of the Elder Futhark
(for more information on the First Ætt per se, go to

This is an installment in a series covering each and every Rune of the Elder Futhark. In this series, instead of giving the esoteric meaning of the Rune by citing the Rune poems written in Old Icelandic, Old Norwegian and Anglo-Saxon (a.k.a. Old English), or any modern commentary, the etymology of the Rune name is presented.

2:2 NAUDHIZ

Pronunciation: “now-these” - just like those two English words, stress on “now.”


Writing: The NAUDHIZ stave stands for the phoneme /n/ - that is, “n” as in “Nancy,” but not as in “thing,” which is another sound (see INGWAZ). There are three nasals in english and Germanic, this /n/ phoneme being one of them. /m/ is another; and the “ng” sound another (again, you must see INGWAZ for details).


Etymology: “compulsion, emergency”
English need, German Not (emergency).
Think here of Al Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” when he brings up the Chinese character for CRISIS - which, he says, is made of of two components: DANGER and OPPORTUNITY.

...Now, NOTICE the entire semantic domain covered by NAUDHIZ through time. Let this be the MYSTICAL MEANING of NAUDHIZ. Study it and ABSORB it.
