Number Prophetess

I recently learnt the Icelandic word for "computer" is tölva.

According to Wiktionary, tölva is a portmanteau word, coined in 1965 from tala ("number") + völva ("prophetess").

Hooray for this! It genuinely brought a big smile to my face on a day when I really needed it :D :D :D

I already knew völva but not tölva. That's a brilliant smush-word. Thank you for sharing!
