  1. Bluetooth got its name from a Danish king, Harald Bluetooth, who ruled Denmark in the 10th century. He united Denmark with portions of Norway to form a unified kingdom and is credited with introducing Denmark to Christianity. Although the ruler's name has little to do with the actual technology, the name Bluetooth reflects the prominence of the Nordic region -- including nations such as Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway -- in the communications industry.
