Okay, someone out there must know how to pronounce the name of this thing...

Closest I can get is E-ya-jaf-jallah-yokel

Can't be right.

Someone? Anyone?

You know what? The hell with it. I'm going with this.

After hearing the above audio file, I'll never pronounce that thing properly.

So now I'm just going to call it "Mike".

As in:

"Volcano Mike continues to erupt in Iceland and wreck havoc across Europe."

That was much easier!

Yeah, but that might get confused with Katya (?), its super-volcano big sister just down the road. Its got a glacier on top too.

-jokull means glacier, -foss means waterfall, -vik means city or town. iceland is a neat place.
