Genealogy is very popular in Iceland. So popular that relatives for which there are no names in English are named in Icelandic (eg, there is a word for people who have the same great – great grandparents). Again, there are too many terms to list, so here are the essentials.
Mummy – mamma
Mother – móðir
Daddy – pabbi
Father – faðir
Parents – foreldrar
Sister – systir
Brother – bróðir
Siblings – systkini
Gran – amma
Granddad – afi
Grandchild – barnabarn
In-laws - tengdafólk
