Listing the Icelandic PMs by surname only is confusing and breaks with the Icelandic convention. I would argue that a full name listing is required. -- Palthrow 01:50, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Agreed, indeed they are of course strictly not surnames but patronyms. —Ashley Y 06:22, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
I've fixed this. I'm not sure if it's acceptable to abbreviate patronyms, however. —Ashley Y 01:30, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
I think it's okay, if slightly unusual in this context. Haukur 22:28, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Name order redux[edit]

Either stick with the full name, just the given name, or just the "surname" and stick with it, else this list will become inconsistent. DHN (talk) 08:25, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

It seems consistent and readable to me now. When the same name occurs twice the initial of the 'last name' is used for disambiguation. Haukur (talk) 08:29, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
