In Norway, we have two official "dialects", and the Sami culture is partly autonomous.

In Norwegian Bokmål it is en drøm (s), å drømme (v), bevisst drøm = lucid dream.

In Norwegian Nynorsk it is ein draum, å draume, and lucid dream doesn't seem to have a term.

I don't know the word in Sami.

The etymology of "dream" seem to be the same for English, Frisian, Old Norse and German, that is stemming from Proto-Germanic "draumaz, draugmaz": “festivity, dream, ghost, hallucination, delusion, deception". (wordnik.com) I think it's especially interesting that in Old Irish roots, the word has to do with a "party or group of people", as I think dreams often reflect many characters, known and unknown in RL.
