Why the name Cnut?

When I first came up with the idea for the series, I thought of a many different traditional Viking names. The one I landed on is in honor of one of the greatest Viking leaders in history: Cnut the Great, who ruled most of Scandinavia and England. Though Cnut the Great lived much later than the events detailed in my story (he died in 1035 AD and my character was born in 790 AD), I thought it an appropriate and honorific name for the main character.
