The Icelanders still use the same naming conventions as the Vikings,
they have no family names as such, but as last name use their fathers
name with "dottir" added if a girl or "son" if son.
The only exception is if the father is unknown or not acknowledged,
then the child will have the mothers name + "dottir" or "son" 
- difficult to hide if you are born out of sin on Iceland...
