The Viking World

Can you translate these Norse geographic terms into modern countries, regions, cities and bodies of water? Manage it, and perhaps Odin will let you into Valhalla...
A number of these terms is ill-defined, because text-based descriptions from the Norse sagas is all the source material we have for most of these terms. Most attested meanings will be accepted as type-ins, but feel free to add to them in the comments.

It's a really cool idea, but the time is too tight. I would nominate if more was added.
