Estonians mainly associate Noarootsi with coastal Swedes, who lived here from mid-13th century until 1944. As a commemoration of Estonian Swedes, there are many Swedish place names in the Noarootsi Rural Municipality. The origin of the name “Noarootsi” is still a mystery, but there are several legends about it. Noarootsi was mentioned in writing for the first time in 1319 (as Nucke).
