Heill Simon,

Well, the piece you´re reading is wrong. Amláib is not Norse, but an Old Irish approximation of the Norse name Óláfr. In Modern Irish it would be spelled Amhláibh, and a very crude rendering into English pronunciation would be "Owlahv".

According to the piece I'm reading, it says it's Norse, but it doesn't look very Norse to me, and would seem to be completely devoid of meaning in Old Norse.
Or is it?
All the best,
