Icelandic name

There is an news anchor for Iceland's Stöð 2 (Channel 2) whose name is Telma Tomásson. Since she appears to be female, I wonder why her surname/patronymic is not Tomásdóttir. Some possibilities I've been thinking about: personal preference, name is not Icelandic, she's trangendered... heh. What do you think?
