To tell you the truth, I have no idea. I think it might be Icelandic, considering who told me this one (her sister spent some month in Iceland, and speaks the language too, apparently).

It's supposed to mean "Mückensee" ("Lake of Midges").

I just looked it up, it's Icelandic. And the correct spelling is Mývatn. As I said, I was told that word when I was about 10 years old (that's 9 years ago), and I was never told how it is supposed to be spelt. "Müvatten" is how basically a direct german transcription of the pronounciation "Mývatn".
