Icelandic names

The Icelandic Naming committee maintains an official register of approved Icelandic given names and is the governing body of introduction of new given names into the culture of Iceland. The Personal Names Register is available to the public. In many cases parents use the database as a guide when choosing a name. If the name they have in mind is not in the register they can fill out a special form and request whether the name will be considered allowable by law. If the committee rules positively on a request the name will be added to the Personal Names Register. The register is stored and maintained at Registers Iceland and is accessible through the national portal Ísland.is.
