The submitter is constructing a name based on the following elements:

Odd-

[1] Landnamabok - http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html

-lin

Kadlin [1](Landnamabok)

Randalin - [2] Geir Bassi Haraldsson, The Old Norse Name - Studia Marklandica 1 Olney, MD Markland Medieval Militia 1977 Page 14

<Oddlin> is a combination of the first element <Odd-> (found in [1] as the first element in masculine and feminine names) and the ending <-lin>. This is seen in the Christian names <Kadlin> and <Randalin> ([1], [2]). The second name, <Randalin> [2], lends support to using <-lin> as a second element as <Rand-> is seen as a first element of traditional Scandinavian names in the case of <Randve> [3]

[3] Peterson, Lena - Nordiskt Rumnamnslexikon (Dictionary of Names from Old Norse Runic Inscriptions) Sprach -och folkminnes intsitutet (Institute for Dialectology Onomastics and Folklore Research).

<Twosocke> - This is a play on the submitters currently registered byname, <Onesocke>.

The submitter will accept the following changes only:

If the surname <Twosocke> cannot be registered, the submitter will alow the change to their currently registered surname <Onesocke>.

If <Oddlin> cannot be registered, the submitter will permit the first name to be changed to <Oddny>

<Oddny> - A combination of two widely documented name elements, <Odd-> and <-ny>, and appears in this combination in Landnamabok [1].
