Icelandic name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Icelandic names.

Iceland is a country in the North Atlantic Ocean, far to the northwest of the UK. It has a population of roughly 350,000 people, who are among the healthiest people in the world. It also runs almost entirely on renewable energy sources.

Icelandic names mostly follow a patronymic system, which means the father's name is used as a surname. In addition to that, either -(s)son or -(s)dottir is added to the father's name.

It's also possible to have a different surname, one which doesn't follow the patronymic system. This usually happens when somebody from a different culture marries somebody in Iceland, or perhaps because a mother's name was chosen instead. But this generator sticks to the patronymic system.
Also note that a good amount of the names in this generator aren't the most modern names in Iceland. Like most countries, cultural influences will have lead to changes and adaptations.
If you want to play it safe, pick the names which sound like modern English names, but with a slight twist.
