Icelandic Names

This collection of Icelandic names is compiled from names used on the Nordic island nation of Iceland. Look no further than just outside of the Arctic Circle to find the perfect name for your child! The predominance of the names used in Iceland are Scandinavian names. Icelandic baby names differ from other Scandinavian names in that a child’s last name is constructed from their father’s first name, so children do not share a similar last name to their parents. First names are also regulated and must be on a government “pre-approved” list in order to be used. Choose an interesting Icelandic baby name for your snow bunny!
