Introduction

Greenland is an autonomous constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. The majority of those who reside in Greenland are Inuit, with their ancestors having begun migrating from the Canadian mainland in the 13th century. The largest island in the world, three quarters of Greenland is covered by the only permanent ice sheet outside of Antarctica. As of 2013, the population of Greenland was around 56,480, making it the least densely populated territory in the world. Look to this unique country for the best ever moniker for your new furry family member.
