correct me if im wrong, but Iceland got it's name from its very harsh winters. and Greenland got its name from its beautiful summers.

Iceland was gorgeous, and the people who lived there didn't want too many people migrating there and ruining it so they named it Iceland.

Lief Erikson, the founder of Greenland, was kicked out of Iceland from murdering a ************ who he thought banged his girlfriend. So he gathered some friends and sailed off to find a new home that was like, 10 times better than Iceland.

He found a barren wasteland of ice and snow, but him and his crew were out of food and resources so they set up there settlement there. They found that fishing was good there, but with so few people they couldn't form a good sized colony.

Unfortunately nobody wanted to ******* live there. It sucked. Lief didn't want to live there, he wanted to go back to Iceland, but he couldn't so he was stuck in his ****** cold barrens.

So Lief chose to name it Greenland and spread rumors about it's beautiful summers, and by the time people would figure out he was full of **** they had already set up their lives there and spent most of their cash so they couldn't really leave.

And that's more or less how Greenland came about.

This is also Iceland though, it does get cold there too. Picture is from Game of Thrones, everything beyond the wall was shot in Iceland.

the vikings called it greenland so people would go there and die, and called it iceland so no one would go there cause they lived there.

Wasn't it something like the original settlers wanted the lush valleys and fertile land so they named it Iceland to give the assumption that it was no good so there would be less competition from other powers, while Greenland has an enticing name for those looking for farm-able land yet it is covered in ice.

When asked why it was called Greenland my professor said if they called it ******* freeze-your-ass-off-land no one would've moved there.

I'm pretty sure Iceland just comes from the Icelandic word for "Island"

When the Vikings discovered Iceland and Greenland, they misnamed them on purpose so they could settle the more desirable land themselves and deter others from going there.

I'd like to correct a lot of you here, it's pretty ******* cold here and we have a lot of snow, in fact we have the largest glacier in Europe. We're 40% rain/storm 40% snow/storm, 15% storm and the rest is sunny weather.

It was actually called Greenland to attract people to settle there were as Iceland was called as it is to deter settlers.
