    Which Rune Has This Meaning?

    Me and my best friend (also heathen) want to get identical tattoos of the rune that means, or has the closest meaning to, "brotherhood" (and preferably in its Anglo-Saxon form).

    Also, another runic tattoo I want is the Anglo-Saxon word "Theod" ("(germanic) tribe"), but I'm not sure which rune should be used for the dipthong "eo". I've seen the yew rune used for it, but have seen it representing "i" at times too.

    Thanks

    - Edward

    I'd say wunjo, or in OE wynn..



    From the OE rune poem..

    (wyn)ne brúce† ∂e can wéana lyt,
    sáres and sorge, and him sylfa hæf†
    blæd and blysse and éac byrga geniht.

    Joy is had by one who knows few troubles,
    sores or sorrow, and has for himself
    reputation and happiness, and also a fine secure home.

    And..

    Wynn \wyn-nn\ as a boy's name (also used as girl's name Wynn), is pronounced win. It is of Old English origin, and the meaning of Wynn is "friend". Also possibly (Welsh) "fair, white". Some of the variants listed are English surnames in rare use as given names.

    Source

    Because..

    Young was I once and went alone,
    and wandering lost my way;
    when a friend I found I found me rich:
    man is cheered by man.

    Havamal 47, Hollander translation

    Quernvarz the rune like eyevarz with the tails lifting of both ends.
    Its is linked to the god Loddur which means identical blood of race.
