The term Younger Futhark actually refers to a host of separate character sets a few of which are presented here. The Younger Futhark character sets are the most recent but least known. They are a prime example of what happens when those that posses a knowledge die out and the original beleif is forgotten. These character sets were used almost exclusively for written correspondence rather than divination. They often mix several character sets and phonetic values, both Latin and runic. The original names the compilers gave to the characters of this rune set are lost to us, as well as their definitive meanings. For these reasons they are the least popular sets, and are only presented here for the sake of completeness and for comparison of the runic sets. However the characters of the Younger Futhark are available by custom order. The names and meanings provided below are based on names given to runes in other sets with the same phonetic value, place or shape.
