[The place-names] Fanketorp and Fankevik

The etymology of two place-names in south-eastern Sweden, the farm-name Fanketorp and the bay-name Fankevik, are the subject of the present article. Positing a man’s name as the first element would be most natural, especially for the farm-name, since most OSw thorp-names follow that pattern. There is, however, no trace of a name *Fanke in Swedish or related languages. Another explanation has to be found.

The swear word fanken ‘devil’, a formation from fan(d)en with the same meaning, is the only likely word to be cognated with the first element Fanke-, which only occurs in the two names discussed. First elements containing curses can refer to bad circumstances of some sort.

Fankevik is only known through an oral record from the 1930’s as the name of a tiny bay (Ryssby parish, Norra Möre county, province of Småland). Today the bay bears another name, but its neighbour 100 meters to the west is called Frankevik. This was probably changed to avoid a bad-sounding name for a local open air dance-floor. Originally both bays were inlets to a larger bay, which may be reconstructed from maps. This older bay must have been quite difficult to enter and leave because of its narrow inlets filled with rocks and shallows. The first element Fanke- probably refers to these difficult conditions.

The farm Fanketorp in the same parish is situated not on particularly stony ground, but on extremely wet soil which makes farming more difficult. Also in this case Fanke- can refer to bad circumstances for exploiting natural resources.
