I remember little of my Japanese, and even less of my Icelandic (of which there was admittedly less to start with),  but still enough to make the Japanese and Icelandic defs implausible. I vote for 6 & 12.

3 and 8 for me – even though somehow ryijy sounds like is should be a smaller version of the dog sled, not a larger one!

Voting for the two that propose an etymology, implausible though it (and they) may be: 2 and 7.
