so..i was just on AOL and i came across this article:

www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11…|main5|dl33|sec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D233654

What do you guys think about this? Personally, I like Iceland as it is. Like, the actually country...it just seems weird to consider this dramatic change lol

And actually, after I'm done brushing up my Norwegian, I wanted to learn Icelandic XD
IT WOULDN'T BE THE SAME  ; A ;

So yeah, please comment and tell me what you think about this! And yes, there is a reason why i posted this to groups like this...hetalia related comment amuse me haha

this is probably not true... and it's a really stupid idea. (though, I have to admit, watching the Nordics argue about it on Hetalia is a GREAT idea)

You know this is not true right? Sure the travel company is hosting a contest to challenge tourists to create a name that fits better, but the government of Iceland is not considering changing at all.

It's a horrible idea to change Iceland's name! People will get confused and things will turn into chaos!
And if it's lack of tourists they worry about, maybe they should tell people to not be so stupid and check the country information before writing it off! Fuckin' dickheads...!:iconpissedplz:

I don't think Iceland should change names...

It's pointless. The article already states my point: People know it by Iceland. Why change it?

No changing Iceland... <3 Bad boy.

I don't know much about the situation or the website, but it gives off the feel of a gag article. I could believe the country would consider changing the name for tourism purposes, but I highly doubt they would consider 'Niceland' or 'jump-for-joyland' I'm probably wrong but it seems kind of odd they would hold a CONTEST for naming an entire country.

whoever thought up this BS, i want to invite you to my house for tea, so i can punch you in the mouth.

Iceland is the best name ever. change it and the world will explode because 99% of the awesome will have suddenly dissapeared.

also, changing the name to be 'inviting' is stupid, because people would just tear up the place without respect for land, culture, ect and then Iceland would be all crappy and poluted.

'cause damn, that island covered in 60% tundra is one of the most beautiful places to ever see, with one of the most lovely cultures. i dont think that will last with more tourists.

i could rant forever. i rest my case. bleh bleh.

If Iceland changed his name that would be like me changing my name from Isabella to Buttface. Iceland is such an awesome name and so what is it discourages tourists and all. Their loss, Iceland is perfect the way he is! D: He doesn't need his name changed. It would be horrible if he changed his name.

In latin XD It's a matter of debate though, if it's really like that or not, see people argue about the word's roots and bla bla bla but it's still a funny story: many say that when the Romans arrived in the peninsula, they were like "oh my, so many bunnies... let's call it Hispania -land of bunnies-" XD

AND THAT'S IT XD

How Iceland got it's name, when vikings arrived, they see ice in the water around the land that's why. It makes logic sense but I forgot how Greenland got it's name. Either why I think it's amusing how people do that. Either way, like Iceland keeps saying "You don't make sense." Which I agree with when he got his name.
