Particulars:
Source MW: "By permission. From Merriam-Webster's Geographical Dictionary. Third Edition cop. 1997 by Merriam-Webster, Incorporated."
Included are all places found in several atlantes possessed by the compiler.
The spelling is in Færoese [although I neglected the "eth" as a diacritic mark]; with the Danish version as a variant.
In one occassion (an older source) once also a town called "Kongshavn" has been found, but no trace is found of it in a modern atlas.
