  • The name Remisbergh, Remnesbergh and other spellings deemed under Onomastics researchers come from the swedish word Rem which means sandy ridge. The word is sometimes spelled Rom as in Rommen located in Mörsil. During the 1560s attributed to our villagename being spelled, Römisbergh, the Sand Mountain. The word Rönning means clearing. Perhaps one can imagine that the word Römesbergh uttered when some careless secretary from Norway, Denmark or Sweden would write the village's name and it became Rönningberg instead Römesberg.
    It could not be easy to be "foreign"secretary and meet people who talked genuine dialect.

    There are other interpretations, they can be read in Bertil Flemström: Jämtländska ortnamn
