No, absolutely nothing whatsoever,although appearently the group Dimmu Borgir
has named one of their songs "Vredesbyrd". The two parts of the words are vrede
=wrath, and byrd = birth, ancestry, class. So I suppose that the group may have
juxtaposed those, and more or less invented this term, with a meaning possibly
of their own.  Which of course they are totally entitled to (linguistic
innovation). The word gives off a kind of Old Norse,antiquated scent.  You
certainly wouldn't hear Norwegians use it in everyday speech ("Hey, what
happened to your vredesbyrd?" "Oh, my vredesbyrd is hurting really bad!" I don't
think so!)

Thank you so much for your answer! In my searches for translation I also found
"vrede" and "byrd" but the actual meaning was elusive. On a different forum I
found "Cognition of wrath" (didn't make too much sense).
