Abstract

Human survival on the Faeroe Islands has required an intimate knowledge of the landscape. This has influenced islanders to attach personal identities to their local environs. People take on geographic names as their own name. Some people even legally changed their Danish surnames to Faeroese names derived from places. - (DWG)
