Sabres were known as far back as the first half of the 10th century, in what is modernly Hungary:

* Nicolle ill. McBride 1984 p38-39 (reconstructing a Magyar nobleman, first half 10th century)

"The way of life of the Magyar warrior aristocracy was similar to that of the Iranian nobility; certainly their equipment had the same Central Asian origins. This man's segmented spangenhelm, sabre and bow are in this tradition. ... The double-breasted felt coat is fastened right across under the left arm. He wears Asian-style fur-lined boots without heels, whose legs button down the outside, the exposed edge cut to a decorative shape; and silver prick-spurs."

* Nicolle ill. McBride 1984 p26

"[A] typically Central Asian curved sabre ... was known to the Christians as a gladius hunnicus or Hunnish sword. Magyar sabres wre characterised by curved hilts and down-turned quillons."

2: Bera Oddsdottir -New Name

Bera - woman's first name taken from The Old Norse Name, by Geirr Bassi Haraldsson (a.k.a. Dr. G. Fleck), and

augmented by Einar Arnórsson's Landnámabók Íslands. Found here:

Odd is found in The Diplomatarium Norvegicum as a masculine given name with Odd Amunda sun 1303, vol. 1, no. 95,

Odd Alffson 1495 vol. 2, no. 981, and frw magnilda odds dotther 1454 vol. 21, no. 474.(http://www.dokpro.uio.no/dipl_norv/diplom_field_eng.html)
