I'm writing some Buffy / Thor fanfic and want an old Norse version of "Vampire slayer," which Thor will use when addressing Buffy, saying something like "I am honoured to meet you, vampire slayer." I only want to translate the title "vampire slayer", not the whole phrase.
Wikipedia gives Buffy, Vampyrenes Skrekk as the Norwegian title for Buffy the Vampire Slayer; is there a better translation to old Norse, preferably without using accented characters?
This isn't incredibly important, so please don't waste a lot of time on it, but if someone knows I'd appreciate your help.
I'm not someone who would normally talk "Old Norse" I know that variations of "vampire" came about pretty late and that is on my mind as I was discussing it with someone last night. I would think that "draugr" which apparently can refer to several types of revenants would be more likely. Another name would be "aptrgangr" which is apparently something like "again walker."
