This case has gotten a lot of attention, both in Iceland and internationally. Ms. Björk Eiðsdóttir sued the Icelandic State on behalf of her daughter, Ms. Blær Bjarkardóttir, who is only fifteen years old. The name has never been approved by the authorities before and so she has been registered in the National Registry as Stúlka Bjarkardóttir, but Stúlka means Girl.
Ms. Björk said that her daughter had told a judge that she was very happy with her name and that she had never had any problems with the name, except when dealing with the authorities. "My lawyer submitted documents that show that there is a precedent for it, that the name can be both female and male" said Ms. Björk in an interview.
