One of WA's oldest and proudest traditions is the assumption of a name in the Old Norse style. Typically, this consists of two Old Norse words with the optional addition of "r" or "a." Some examples are Randleifr Scydling, Eohdorr Leitling, Vestborgr Leitling, Konungrormr Jormling, Solljos Jormling, and Athvalr Hazen (note that "Hazen" is a non-Norse name unique to Family Kilroy, a former House). All members of WA have a family name, such as Leitling, Jormling, or Grimling. This name is taken from the family name of the member who recruited you. For example, if a member of the Leitling family recruits a member, that member can choose an Old Norse name (two words chosen from below), but their family name will be Leitling.  Below you will find a list of Old Norse words and their English translations.
