Norn (n.)

one of the three female fates of Scandinavian mythology, whose decrees were irrevocable, 1770, from Old Norse norn (plural nornir), which is related to Swedish dialectal norna "to warn, to communicate secretly," perhaps ultimately imitative of low murmuring (compare Middle High German narren "to growl, snarl").
