What's in a name
The Old Norse form of the city name was Stafangr. Although one is not quite certain what the name derives from, the most common interpretation is that the first part refers to the high or steep mountains (Valberget on the east side of the bay) and the latter means fjord or "inlet" - as in Hardanger.
