I'll translate your names into Icelandic

I thought this could be fun to do, so… Give me your favorite names or combos and I’ll translate them into Icelandic. I’ll use the Icelandic or Old Norse version of the name if it exists, look for a name with the same meaning or just the same vibe.
I’ll try and find a name that’s on the list of approved names in [name_f]Iceland[/name_f], but sometimes I might use a name that was rejected or just not on the list.
In [name_f]Iceland[/name_f] people don’t use middle names as such, a person can have two names but the name is considered a double barrel name. You can give me a combo that consists of more than two names, but know that in that case the combo would not be used in [name_f]Iceland[/name_f] like that.

Please limit yourself to three names or combos each, to keep it doable.

I’d love to see what [name_f]Leia[/name_f] and [name_m]Mees[/name_m] could be in [name_f]Iceland[/name_f]

[name_m]Can[/name_m] you do [name_u]Romy[/name_u]

I’d love if you could do [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] and [name_f]Isla[/name_f] :slight_smile:

just my first names then :heartpulse:



[name_f]Lucie[/name_f] [name_f]Adélaïde[/name_f] → Lúsía Aðalheiður

[name_u]Jules[/name_u] → Júlí


[name_m]Edwin[/name_m] → [name_m]Edvin[/name_m] or maybe even Edílon
[name_f]Lumi[/name_f] → Snæ or [name_m]Snær[/name_m] (both meaning snow, Snæ is unisex and [name_m]Snær[/name_m] is traditionally male, but since you can use any name for any gender in [name_f]Iceland[/name_f] now, I’ve included it).


[name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Astraea[/name_f] → Rós Stjarna (meaning star) or Rósý Stjarna to make it flow better :slightly_smiling_face:
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Athena[/name_f] → Mjaðveig [name_f]Aþena[/name_f] or or Mey Atena (Mey purely based on sound/vibe)
[name_f]Hermione[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] → Hermína Jónea

[name_m]Mees[/name_m] → Mías or [name_m]Mosi[/name_m] (based on sound and vibe), or maybe Skíði (literally means “a kind of bird”, and if I’m not mistaken “mees” is a type of bird in [name_m]Dutch[/name_m], right?)


[name_u]Romy[/name_u] → Róm or Róma, and based on sound maybe Rósný


[name_u]Ezra[/name_u] → [name_u]Esra[/name_u], and based on sound: Esjar or Esmar

[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hebe[/name_f] [name_f]Moon[/name_f] → Ófelía [name_f]Heba[/name_f] Máni (Máni means “moon” and is traditionally masculine)
