Sjóvar Municipality (Faroese: Sjóvar kommuna) is a municipality of the Faroe Islands. The name of the municipality has its origins from the farm Sjógv á Strondum which gave name to Sjóvar parish. The name comes from the Faroese word for seawater (sjógvur). [1] Sjóvar covers a part of the island of Eysturoy. It consists of the villages of Strendur, Innan Glyvur, Selatrað, Morskranes and Kolbanargjógv.[citation needed]
