Nýlendu  Icelandic Sheepdogs

I am providing this list of Icelandic names for dogs in hopes that you will choose an Icelandic name for your Icelandic Sheepdog puppy.  I grew up in Iceland and it is important to me that we don’t loose its heritage.  I have pages for both Male and Female names. Click on the Icelandic name and you can hear how to pronounce it in Icelandic. I will try to add names every now and then.  It is my hope that from these lists you will be able to find a name that fits your new family member.
