Kingdom Commentors offered:
When constructing a name, SENA requires at least three examples of each element.
The noun <draugr> makes its genitive in <draugs> and the genitive plural as <drauga>. Either would be appropriate in a placename, usually betokening a nearby burial ground.
The second element is <heimr> "an abode, village", but extended to mean "land, region, world" in some cases.
Expecting <Draugseimr> or <Draugaheimr>.
