Q: Where is Laki in Lakagígar from and what does it mean?
A: Some volcanoes in Iceland, like Hekla and Laki, do not have a special meaning.
The name Lakagígar means craters of Laki.
Before the biggest eruption in Iceland’s history, at Laki in 1783, the name of the volcano was
Eldborgir or ‘Fire cities.’
