Futhark Runes - The Three Aettir


The Futhark runes are split into 3 Aettir or groups (the singular is aett). As you can see below, if you look at the phonetic equivalent beneath the rune name, you the first six letters are: F - U - TH - A - R - K. Which spells Futhark and is how the runes came to be known as Futhark runes.
