I've occasionally been known (usually when someone is trying to bring up the relatively warm 11th/12th century in Greenland as "evidence" that climate change doesn't exist) to refer to Greenland's name as the world's first known instance of misleading marketing claims by promoters of a real estate development.

Southwest Iceland right now seems unbelievably green, though the only thing they seem to grow is grass to feed the animals. Maybe the growing season is too short to grow other stuff?

Probably. They have extensive greenhouses somewhere in that area for items like lettuce, tomatoes, etc., for the island.
