  2. I do apologize for rpilyeng in English, don’t know Hebrew but could read all the info via Google Translate The problem with the length of the name is not due to the Icelandic naming regulation, it is due to the fact that the computer system that was installed many years ago didn’t accept more than 31 characters. This made the government officials “ban” people to use above 31 characters. The only substitute is using only the first letter as Guy mentioned above.I know this sounds very stupid (it is) but this has been a problem for a long time but will be fixed soon since it is most likely illegal.Being Icelandic I do like the fact that we don’t use family names. This gives each individual the option of becoming something by his own but not “because he belongs to the Jonsson family” or something like that. Family names where used in Iceland by rich immigrants that ruled a lot the business in Iceland before we became indepented. Those names still exist with some individuals but we couldn’t care at all. Some form of Icelandic family names also have been used as with Laxness, Eldje1rn etc. but people will always have to use their parents name as well (people can choose between using your fathers or mothers name in your last name. By default fathers name is added to your name but it can be changed. So if my mothers name was Helga then I would be Helguson (the name to Helgu Helga changes according to Icelandic Grammar).a0
