    Sv: A question!

    Could derive from "Þing", gathering, "Zusammenkunft". Raven should be clear, "Rabe". Sounds like a new age pseudo ásatruar invention to me.

    By the way: You should introduce yourself before you go on posting. Would you talk to someone on the street before you haven't told him/her who you are?

    AW: A question!

    "raventhing" is also unknown to me. In German it would something mean like "Rabensache".
    Maybe it descends from "thing", the Germanic word for "gathering"/"meeting". So maybe it means "Rabentreffen" in German.

    Or you wrote it false, and it means "ravenging", an english vocabulary, which means that someone goes very mad and shows brutality. For example "Ravenging warriors wandered trough the country and showed no mercy".
