English: Names of people from Iceland differ from most current Western family name systems by being patronymic (occasionally matronymic) in that they reflect the immediate father (or mother) of the child and not the historic family lineage. Icelanders have continued to use their traditional name system, which was formerly used in all of Scandinavia. Therefore, the Icelandic system does not use family names (while some people have family names and might use both systems). Name lists are sorted by first names.
