Icelandic Naming Committee Rejects Clinton

The Icelandic Naming Committee rejected the name Clinton at its recent meeting. The committee made several rulings on July 30, most of which were positive, but Clinton was rejected as a middle name on the basis that it is not considered derived from local roots, mbl.is reports.

Diamond as a first name was also rejected on the basis that according to rules on written Icelandic, ‘i’ does not come before ‘a.’

Meanwhile, the first names Hrafnfífa, Hjaltalín, Lótus, Amil and Ermenrekur were approved.
