There are various online articles written to help you understand about the Norwegian naming patterns used. I'll give you links for your study.

Rough guess would be that Sivertsvik indicates the name of a farm where the family had lived or had family history.
Meanwhile continuing to search for the man and woman in the 1900 Norwegian census... will post any interesting possibilities IF found for you.
