Why did the vikings name Greenland Greenland?
Some danish guy named it Greenland because it sounded good. Though some people say he called it Grundland (Groundland) and somehow it became Grønland (Greenland)...

It is I think named because it has a lot of trees and things that are green.
the first viking explorer who discovered America was Leaf Erickson.
Greenland was explored by the Viking, _______. Eric the Red! :)
Eric the Red.
1) It was warmer then, and at least part was green. 2) Real-estate hype ... they wanted colonists.
they named iceland iceland so that they could keep it for themselves and so that no one would want to go there. they named greenland greenland so that they could trick people …and in the process hopefully kill them
No, The Vikings Are Said To Have Discovered Greenland A Long, Long Time Ago!
Eric the Red
Leif Erikson went to greenland and even though greenland had so much ice on it he wanted to attract people there and called it greenland
