Great pictures from a beautiful place, looks ccccccold! Why do they call it Iceland?

"The first Scandinavian who deliberately sailed to [Iceland] was Flóki Vilgerðarson [...]. Flóki settled for one winter [...]. It was a cold winter, and when he spotted some drift ice in the fjords he gave the island its current name, Ísland (Iceland)."
