A 15-year-old girl in Iceland has won a court ruling that allows her to legally use her name Blaer.
Apparently in Iceland, you have to take a name from an approved list and Blaer was not on the list.
Authorities had said her name was too masculine sounding, Maclean’s reported.
A name also has to fit standard grammar and pronunciation rules.
Females can choose from 1,853 approved names. Not sure how many choices males have.
I must say I did not know about this law in Iceland. Did you?
In the hopes that we do learn something new every day, maybe this gives you a bit more knowledge about Iceland.
Anything you’d like to share that we may not know?
