nöfn húsanna

I was in a village of red sandstone walls and coal grates when I first saw houses with names in place of numbers. Sometime much later I realized that the numbers were place of names and not the other way around.

I've seen many of them since, and I no longer find them so exotic.
Borg
Kot
Sætún
Mánagarður
Svalbarð
Birkihlíð
Gullbringa
Rúst

But I think my favorite is Vinaminni -- Memory of Friends.
