    It is better to ask a question rather than remain in ignorance, right?

    I am sure it is an obvious answer and I feel silly for asking... *clears throat*, but what does Skol stand for?

    Meaning;

    Skol (written skål in Norwegian and Swedish, and sometimes "Skoal" in English) is the Norwegian/Swedish/Danish word for a salute or a toast, as to an admired person or group. The meaning of the Scandinavian skalli/skalle: skal means simply "shell" and skál/skål "bowl". There is a popular misconception that the toast comes from the mythical habit of Vikings to drink from cups made from the skulls of their defeated enemies.
