I don't know where that came from but my family says it too. We are
3/4th Norwegian and 1/4 swede. It would be interesting to find out.
This summer when my cousin and a friend were visiting from Norway one of
them dressed up very nicely to go to church. I then heard the other say
Oy! It sounded like we sometimes use wow! These people came from Nord
Trondelag.
