          Your name would be Johansdottir
          No, this is absurdly incorrect. A helpful hint for you: http://eng.domsmalaraduneyti.is/information/nr/125

            ^Nearly all (well over 90%) Icelanders have a patronymic last name (ending in son or dóttir). The majority of the rest have a patronymic name in addition to a proper family name. Very (very) few have only a family name.

              True or false - not "almost" or "mostly" true: Everyone on Iceland are named dottir?

                stoffert is obviously not a native speaker of English, but you can make an effort to read their first sentence:
                Everyone on Iceland are named dottir, say if your fathers name ar Johan, and you are a girl.

                  You can make an effort to re-read my question which was drawn from the entirety of that statement. Repeated for the learning impaired (who appears to have morphed again): True or false - not "almost" or "mostly" true: Everyone on Iceland are named dottir? Ms Bryndis Holm is a female. She's Icelandic. She should be included in "everybody", but her name is not Ms Bryndis Holmdottir. Consequently, Ms Sigrun Fjeldsted is also not named Ms Sigrun Fjeldottir. Neither is Ms Iris Gronfeldt not Ms Iris Grondottir, but "green field". I believe not "everyone" in Iceland who is a woman is named dottir --- whether their father is a Johan or not.

                    This is correct. I said this much 2 posts above.

                      You may have, but I was pointing out the fact that this statement was incorrect. As a result of having hijacked this thread, hope a thousand dottirs come steaming down my dirt road today and kick up a bunch of dust into my garden; try to catapult over my house with sticks; and throw rocks through my windows :-)

                        It appears the "Next Ms O'Sullivan" will square off against the "Next Ms Decker". Speed should prevail in this one despite which places they earn in the final.

                          Yeah, he held up just enough for the win. Word is that he's going pro, and bypassing the US college system. Even though these kids are skipping the college route that doesn't mean they can't get a degree. Millions of people are earning their degrees using the online/long distance study route now. Even me is going to get in the act and gain another to add to my credentials, you can never stop learning.

                                Let me look for one, fortunately (for me) a cable channel here in Jamaica is carrying it live.

                                Edit: no channel other than CBC, will keep looking.
