indeed, as far as I know it means glaciar, it is used in the same way
as mount is in e.g. Mount St Helens, as well as just meaning
glacier. I've never heard it used in a persons name tho.

Hi, on the Italian wiktionary someone with only
IP added the above term
with a capital letter. The definition says that it means "ice" or is a
person's name. Now I tried to check with is.wikipedia/is.wiktionary and
I found out that indeed it is a persons name, but I cannot find a
reference to its meaning of "ice".
It means a glacier. It has, btw, been borrowed to Danish in the form
'jøkel', which is a bit narrower in scope - we would say 'jøkel' about
a glacier in the Nordic countries, while we would say 'gletsjer' about
