Björk means birch tree not only in Icelandic but in Swedish as well, and in Norwegian (only spelled with the Norwegian ø).

Most people pronounce this name incorrectly as "byork" so that it rhymes with "York", but the correct pronunciation is "byerk" so that it rhymes with work.

Added to the one above: for all English speaking people, make sure to pronounce the r like a Spanish or French r. So it will be something like byueRk.
