Actually, Google reveals that there are two different keyboard layouts
for that language, one for Norwegian keyboards and one for
Swedish/Finnish keyboards:

Don't know if you want to support both, but you should probably make it
clear which one you are supporting.

Norwegian Nynorsk and Norwegian Bokmål use the same keyboard.  The
proper keyboard layout is "Norwegian" regardless of language.

BTW, confusing Sámi and Norwegian is a bit like confusing Hungarian and
French :-)  Not even the same language family...
