Icelandic Names (This time for a YA *female* main character)

Discussion started on

 :faint

OK, dammit. I'll order the first episode on Blockbuster.com.

God, ecb. Why'd you come by with yer fancy words, luring me in.

(It was the "heartbreaking" that got me. I never would have thunk it.)

(Well, in fairness, DH says I have to mention that things don't become heartbreaking until Seasons 2 and 3.  But it's still funny, sassy, and hip before then. :D)

Hmph. Well, it's in my queue. We shall see what becomes of it all....

Anja is good.

Many of those names sound very different than they appear!!!
I know people with those names. They use letters in the Icelandic alphabet that are not in our alphabet. Gudrun should be pronounced kind of like Guthvrun. Kind of. There is no way to really duplicate the way it sounds. But it is much softer sounding than the d which in my opinion is the wrong letter to use, but that is what is always used.

I never met an Anja or a Kadlin while living in Iceland. If only I'd kept my Icelandic phone book. Every single person in Iceland is in there--alphabetical by first name of course, since there are no last names. I should have sent it to you Lenzi. Well, if I ever get back there I'll get my hands on one and send it to you.
 Actually, I bet it is online.

It really, really is. The season 5 episode "The Body" is the most wrenching thing I've ever seen on TV.

But on the less devastating side, there's Spike (though I don't think he shows up until season 2). I loves me some Spike.
