New page on late innovations to the runes

One of my interests is how late medieval and early modern poets and scribes continued to propagate information about runes, and occasionally tweak things here and there, like by adding new names and kennings to runes that previously were merely variants of others.

The earliest ones mentioned here picked up and are copied with somewhat high frequency (though are not universal). Others look like they are late innovations that couldn’t carve out a permanent place for themselves, but are interesting inventions anyway.
