I need to make a single compound word in the Icelandic tongue, that means "the Old Language".  One word.  It needs to sound appropriate to the Icelandic tongue and not be completely uncomfortable to say.  I once had to find a compound for Fire Snake and found Eldslanga was a superb solution.

The word for "the old language" is "fornmál". It means archaic language and is used in referral to old Norse.
