Today’s Icelandic baby names
For many of us — of, shall we say, a certain age — our introduction to Iceland came from the classic 80s videogame Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?. How else would the name of the city of Reykjavík become a houshold word to 6 to 12 year olds?

Also known for its volcanoes, geysers, and delicacies such as hákarl (fermented shark), this island nation is mainly Nordic in ancestry, with some Gaelic mixed in. No matter whether you’re looking to get in touch with your roots or just trying to make sure there won’t be 4 other kids in you little one’s kindergarten class with the same name, look to the list of top 100 Icelandic names for inspiration.
