The name Greenland comes from grœnn (“green”) +‎ land (“land”).

Also, according to Wikipedia, "recent archaeological excavations have revealed the ruins of a cabin in Hafnir on the Reykjanes peninsula (close to Keflavík International Airport). Carbon dating reveals that the cabin was abandoned somewhere between 770 and 880, suggesting that Iceland was populated well before 874."
