    We have Jónsson, Johansson, Gustafsson, Magnusson, and Axelsson, the rest is not Icelandic. We would have Eiríkur instead of Erik, Sveinn instead of Sven, no Peter, but Pétur, and so on.
    Lík börn leika best.

    I have relatives whose family name is one of those 5 Swedish names above .... but that is not our/my family name. So my name would always expose that I'm immigrant in Iceland.
    Good to know in any cases.
