@Tjalve Foss means waterfall in Icelandic. If foss doesn't mean waterfall in Norwegian than what does? Also, what in your view is the difference between a waterfall and a cascade anyway? :)

Almost all Icelandic waterfalls end in -foss. The exceptions are cases where the waterfall's name is a descriptor, like "Glymur" (clashing/rumbling), "Dynjandi" (roaring) or "Hverfandi" (disappearing).
