Interesting Facts about Iceland
Most Icelanders have no surnames. In 1925, a special law was passed prohibiting Icelanders from bearing surnames. Nevertheless, about 10% of the population retains them – the most common surnames in Iceland are Tulinius, Dahl, Norddal. Basically, new immigrants do not change their names upon obtaining Icelandic citizenship and retain their names and surnames.
And also Icelanders have only middle names, which are formed by adding to the name of the father- either son (“son”) or dóttir (“daughter”).
