The Bluetooth system was invented in Sweden and when it came time for it to go on the market it needed a name. What better source for a name, than Harald Bluetooth, a Viking leader in Denmark. Harald was known for his "dark" tooth, but he was better-known as a leader who could communicate with various groups of warring Vikings and unite them. Bingo! Communication between systems was exactly what the digital system was designed to do. The logo for the new system used the Viking rune letters of an H and a B, to acknowledge Harald.
