I live in Norway, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ these names look OK to me. Maybe a little flashy.
Well take it from me, they look crazy.
Although it is supposed to be Hveragerði, Kirkjubæjarklaustur (sometimes just called Klaustur) and Skeiða- og Gnúpverjahreppur. (I have never seen anzone mistake p for o before.) And I can't find Ásólsskáli so if it exist it is too small to be on a map. There are a lot of gas stations and kiosks that are called so an so skáli though.
One of the reasons why I love Icelandic. :D
I had a heck of a time trying to use a gas pump in Reykjavik due to it being in liters and Icelandic. It's so wacky that it's fun!
My wife and I both agree that if it's possible, we will retire to Iceland. We love that place.
Even in December?
When my husband and I went to Iceland we rented a car and bought a road map, but because Iceland is pretty small, the map scale was waaaaaay different than we're used to. He'd be driving, and I'd be like, "okay, in a little while you're going to want to look for a...oh, that was it. Okay, turn around at Snorra...braut...uh...street."
Haha! That was the same with us. "Okay keep your eyes out for a town coming up. No, that's just three sheds and a tractor, keep going." (An hour later) "Okay that was the town."
