In 1918, The Kingdom of Iceland was founded. In 1944, it changed to just Iceland.
I have researched about what Iceland was originally called, and apparently, it's first name was given to the person who is credited to discover the land, Naddoddr. Basically, he found it and named it Snowland. That was around 825. I am looking for what it was commonly & officially called around 1874~, that's like an entire millennium later...
Other things Iceland is called is (source: Wikipedia):
Islandia – directly from Icelandic language "Ísland"
Snelandia – a Latinization of the more poetic name Snæland
Insula Gardari – literally meaning "Island of Garðar", compare Garðarshólmi
I am not sure how common these names were or anything like that.
Now that I've attempted to prove that I've done my research, I think you can tell that I am still struggling to wrap my head around this, and that I can not find a complete answer.
If anyone knows anything, I'd appreciate the information, as I have been looking for quite a while.
Common Name: What people commonly call it, e.g. people commonly call "United States of America" just "United States" or "The States".
Official Name: The official name, what else am I supposed to say?
Also please note that this is my first time using StackExchange, I am usually just a lurker, but I don't focus to much on the format of the questions and answers, so I assume that the format of this question isn't very good...
