Icelandic naming committee: Yes to Luis and no to Pírati
The Icelandic Naming Committee have issued a new ruling for name applications.
The names Luis and Dóróthea are allowed but the middle name Sjafnar is not accepted as it is not conjugated according to Icelandic grammar rules.
Last month, the name Pírati (Pirate) was found unacceptable as the name does not derive from the Icelandic language. The name Bambus (bamboo) however complies to grammatical rules.
