In M:tG there's a card called Jokulmorder:

http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=121198

As I gather, jokul is Icelandic for "ice covered mountain" or "glacier" or something, and -morder is a Danish word(/suffix?) meaning "killer". I can't seem to find any instances of the words in the same language(s) ... have Googled, etc.

Have the publishers of the card simply taken two "Scandinavi-esque" words from different languages, and fuxed them together? ← meant to say 'fixed' but the typo I felt was somehow more appropriate. :P
