In 800 A.D. the Vikings went to Britain bringing the word "oge" (pronounced ow-way) meaning fearful. When the Vikings left, Britain kept the word changing the pronunciation to "awe". The word "awe" brought two words with it, "Awesome" and "Awful". For many years the two words had the same meaning. In the 1800's Awesome branched off of awful and became its own word with its own meaning which now it has a good meaning.
