I am reasonably sure that <Ylva> is an Old Swedish derivation from Old Norse <ylgr>, <ylgja> "she-wolf"; the related verb <ýla> is "to howl". See: Lexicon Poëticum Antiquæ Linguæ Septentrionalis p. 900 s.v. <ylgja>, <ylgr>, <ýla>. (Sveinbjörn Egilsson. Copenhagen: J. D. Qvist & Co. 1860.

Copenhagen: S. L. Møllers. 1931.

http://www.septentrionalia.net/lex/index2.php?book=d&page=-3&ext=png)

Such a byname follows the well-established pattern of animal names used as bynames, for

ex.: <kraka> "crow"; <lambi> "lamb"; <Hafr-> "Billygoat-"; <hestr> "horse"; <hngr> "salmon";

(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NRSP-YFW)

The September 2012 LoAR Cover letter notes:

"In general, family names documented in sixteenth century England may be used to create given names ...."

(http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/09/12-09cl.html#5)

Rowland Boke

(because the attested name Wodebok' almost certainly has that apostrophe there to show an -e fell off)

Male, married 1572, Cumberland, England. Batch no. M00196-1

(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NVS6-YMT)

John Adamsone, male, christened 1591, Lincoln, England. Batch no. P01106-1

(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5VQ-B75)

SENA Appendix A says double surnames in English require no further documentation.

So he'd wind up with "Wode_Boke Adamsone" as a 16th c. English name.

This one is not a Pennsic submission. Submitted as <Wodebok Adamsone>. <Wodebok> was documented as a Middle English nickname byname which would not be usable as a given name. This alternate was offered in commentary. The item was Peneded from the Middle ILoI dated 2017-04-04 awaiting reply from the submitter. They responded that this was acceptable.
