Trig is probably closely related to the Norse word-root trygg which means loyal, secure or firm. The Indo-European root deru (tru) was with a u-sound that became a y-sound with mutation (umlaut) in the Nordic languages sometimes before the Viking ages. A later mutation is that Y-sound became I-sound In Icelandic and Norwegian (not Swedish) in the middle ages which has not been adapted in the spelling of the words. Then most English adapted Nordic words with Y are respelled with an I.

A male name based on this root is common in some Nordic countries Islandic:Tryggvi Norwegian:Tryggve but it is maybe most common as a dog’s name, tryggur (old: tryggr) meaning faithful.

In Icelandic, this root trygg- or tru- is in a myriad of concatenated words. Most likely, the English word trust is of the same root. You should be able to find related German words by replacing the I with a U or O.

According to Gov. Sarah Palin, the name means strength, brave, or victory.[1]


The name Trig became more mainstream after 2008, when politician Sarah Palin gave her newborn son this noble moniker.


  • Trig Palin is the son of Sarah Palin, who became the Alaskan Governor on December 4, 2006.
