In Shetland, the Tjaldur is the Shalder and the Lunde/Lundi is the Tammy Norrie.

We also have:
Arctic Fern = tirrick
Seagull = maa (young bird) & scorie (adult bird)
Skua = bonxie
Kittiwake = weeg
Great Cormorant = brongie/brungawheedie
Curlew = whaap
Fulmar = maalie
Gannet = solan
Great Black-Backed Gull = swaabie
Guillemot = tystie
Heron = hegri

That's just some of the Old Shetland names. I'm sure that there are similarities to some of the other Scandic countries
