I can't easily make a ten-item list, but one of
my absolute favorites must be Þrjótrunn _Þrjótur_
'Iceland', if only because _þrjótur_ in Icelandic
means 'knave'.  Far from suggesting that the average
Icelander is a knave, which is far from the case,
they still always had a soft spot for anyone with an
attitude!
