What's in an Icelandic sprite's name

Met an Icelandic pixie in a bar; she disappeared in a puff of twinkly frost. I need you to help me spell her name. She went by "Anna" (so did her equally tall, equally blonde Icelandic friend!) but her full name was pronounced something like: Beern-Ana. Ok, so...who's got a clue as to how that's spelled?

She told me that the 'Beern' part is Icelandic for 'bear,' if that helps. (Maybe that is a lie. She seemed to tell me several lies in the space of a few minutes. I'm smitten.)
