I think you didn't see this answer which told that meaning.

Medelpad is the province (landskap) name. Västernorrland is the name of the county (län). Njurunda is the parish name.

Look at this province map of Sweden.

This url has two maps of Swedish counties. One is the old map as counties existed when our ancestors lived there. The other one is a modern county map.
