Interestingly, Bluetooth technology was named after Harald Bluetooth, Viking King of Denmark in the tenth century. It is understood that the king had lost a tooth in his mouth. And the missing tooth looked silver.


One day in 1997, Jim Cardak, an Intel engineer, and Seven Mattison, an Ericsson engineer, went to the bar together after losing their competition. There are legends about the history of drinking alcohol among them. A couple of days ago, Mattison read a book called The Longship. The book described the tale of King Harald Bluetooth. In the middle of the plot, Mattison told Jim. Later, historian Jim returned home and read a book called The Vikings. Here he will learn more about King Bluetooth. That came to his mind later in the name of this wireless technology. In one post, Jim says that the Harald brought together the different tribes of Denmark and encouraged Christianity among them.

I thought that’s why this new wireless technology could be called Bluetooth. Because this technology will integrate many isolated devices. In addition to naming, the Bluetooth technology logo also has a specialty. You may have seen the Bluetooth logo for a long time and thought that a B has been made here by arranging a few such straight lines. But that’s not the point, this B in the logo is actually a combination of the Nordic language H and B, which is actually the initials of the name Harald Bluetooth. Combining these two characters has transformed it into the letter B and into the logo of our current most popular Bluetooth. Even though that Viking king died 1,000 years ago today, his name still lingers in our pockets! If you want to know more about this content, you can take the help of Wikipedia.
