poor example with no basis in fact...sorry

There are two written sources on the origin of the name, in The Book of Icelanders (═slendingabˇk), a historical work dealing with early Icelandic history from the 12th century, and in the medieval Icelandic saga, The Saga of Eric the Red (EirÝks saga rau­a), which is about the Norse settlement in Greenland and the story of Erik the Red in particular. Both sources write: "He named the land Greenland, saying that people would be eager to go there if it had a good name."

The island was named Greenland just to get more people to settle there.
