..and why is Iceland called Iceland?
The European name of Greenland is most probably due to a marketing maneuver to encourage settlement, even if during the Viking settlement the climatic conditions of the island were at an optimum and therefore it was probably greener than what we observe presently. Iceland though had several names before a permanent Viking settlement and was a victim of a similar but negative marketing strategy.
