Did Vikings Believe Their Sword Was A Part of Their Soul?

Question by Daniel: Did Vikings Imagine Their Sword Was A Aspect of Their Soul?
I believed I heard this in passing and am composing a paper and arranging on which includes this. Is this correct? If not their soul, did they believe it was a aspect of them? In Beowulf they did name their swords, so I was wondering if this was genuine.

    In the Marine Corps we named our riffle. Mine was Ester. Hot huh. I have Viking heritage and I have not heard this.

    i named my sword… her name is dusksinger, because of the black hilt and the beautiful ring she makes when you swing her…

    Hello,

    No but they thought if they did die fighting, they were assured of a place of honor in Valhalla – their heaven.

    Cheers,
