* * *
Yes it’s true, the country called Greenland is covered in ice and snow, whereas Iceland has rolling fields of green.
But why did things end up this way?
Turns out that there’s good reasons behind the seemingly opposite names. Well, maybe "good" is too strong a word...
So there you have it. Greenland, a place 3/4 of which is covered in ice, was named by a guy who wanted to trick people into thinking it was full of warmth an greenery. And Iceland was named by a guy who mistakenly thought it was full of ice an wanted to make sure nobody was fooled into thinking otherwise. Pretty interesting how that worked out, don’t you think?
