Viking Age names in Iceland

I’ve gone out to a few SCA events, but as of yet I haven’t chosen a “persona”. However, part of this includes selecting a persona name which has some authenticity. With that in mind, when I saw that at the Iceland National Museum in Reykjavik that they had a list of names and nicknames from 800-1000 in Iceland.
