Nordic Names Blog - Greenlandic Name Count

Today we added the Greenlandic name count to our name count tables!

The Statistics office of Greenland [1] publishes the number of first names and the number of second/middle names used in Greenland. Unfortunately, they do not show the gender of the name. That is why we can only give you the total amount of name bearers.

The Icelandic statistics which we added in 2017 work the same way. We have now decided to use a white bar in the commonness column for Greenland and Iceland instead of the blue or red ones if the name is used for both genders and the distribution is not clear.


To learn more about the name count of the other Nordic countries, have a look at Name Count per Country.
