Its first name was ”Norske militære FN-observatørers landsforbund” (English: Norwegian Military UN Observers' National Association). Later this was changed to ”FN-befalets landforbund" (English: UN Officers' National Association), and in 1988 it was changed again, this time to ”FN-veteranenes Landsforbund" (FNVLF) (English: The UN Veterans' National Association) also opening up the organization for membership for regular soldiers.
