* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign:
** Iceland adheres to a strict rule of patronymic, or in rare cases matronymic, naming system and thus parents and children almost never share the same last name (unless their recent ancestors came from overseas). In real life, Hannah wouldn't have the full name Hannah Ásgeirsson, as stated by the credits, but rather Hannah Sigurbjörnsdóttir (derived from her father Sigurbjörn). Even if her father was named Ásgeir, as she's a woman, hers should be Ásgeirs''dóttir''.
** Averted with the dialogue, though, as Hannah's actress (Anita Briem) is an Icelandic native.
