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. They're also the greenest energy users in the world, with nearly all of their energy needs met by 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)dóttir is added to the genitive form (a grammatical form) of the father's name.
This patronymic system was set into law in 1925, but those who had a surname before this year were allowed to keep it. So once in a while surnames will still pop up.
