This name must be returned for conflict with the registered Eric Bjornsson. Both names are effectively identical in sound and only slightly different in appearance.

His device is registered under the holding name Eirikr of Caid.

Eirikr is a masculine Norse given name found in GB pg 9 with 12 instances.

10: Klaus Axelsson - New Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2016, via Caid.

Clann Gallóglaigh

(Fieldless) an Irish wolfhound contourny brown proper maintiaining an axe palewise argent

The submitter is not particular about the spelling in Gaelic cares more about registering the Gaelic version of Galloglass

Clann is the Irish version form used as a household designator found in Alys's Simple Guide to Household Names DRAFT IN PROGRESS (October 2016)Mistress Alys Mackyntoich http://alysprojects.blogspot.com/2016/10/alyss-simple-guide-to-household-names.html

C. Household Names Based on Ancestor's Name 1. Gaelic

Medieval Gaelic clans were named after significant male ancestors (usually already deceased). The basic naming pattern for clans in Gaelic was:

clan term + clan ancestor's name (in genitive case & sometimes lenited)

The most common clan term was Clann, which is the term most commonly requested as a designator. For other clan terms and discussion of the grammar of forming clan names, see Sharon Krossa's "Medieval Gaelic Clan, Household, and Other Group Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/households.shtml)

Gallóglaigh From the April 2010 LoAR for the name registration of Geirúlfr mac an Gallóglaigh

snip The second issue is that the byname must be demonstated to be compatible temporally with the Old Norse given name, so as not add a second step from period practice. Gallóglaigh appears in Gaelic as a reference to groups of foreign soldiers (from Scotland) who are in Ireland, known in modern English as Galloglasses. The earliest recorded group of Galloglasses in Ireland is from the second half of the 13th C. Woulfe, p. 313 s.n. Mac an Ghallóglaigh, dates the Anglicized Irish form M'Agaloglie to temp. Elizabeth I - James I. This surname literally translates as 'son of the Galloglass', showing support for a Gaelic form of Gallowglass having been used in period to describe a single member of this group and not solely as a term for the group as a whole. Also supporting this usage is an entry in the Annals of Ulster (vol. 3, entry U1435.10) which states, "Toirrdelbach Mac Domnaill, sai galloglach, mortuus est." The 19th C translation for this entry reads, "Toirdhelbach Mac Domnaill, an eminent gallowglass, died."

While we cannot be certain when the adjective gallóglach came into use to describe an individual, the entry above supports it by the mid-15th C, and it likely was in use at least somewhat earlier. It is plausible enough to be registerable as a late 13th C descriptive byname. Based on similarly constructed surnames, a man whose father had Gallóglach as a descriptive byname would have had a byname of mac an Gallóglaigh - literally meaning his father was a Galloglass.

As mac an Galloglach is plausible as a late 13th C byname, there is not an a second step from period practice for a temporal disparity of greater than 300 years between the Old Norse given name and the Gaelic byname. We have changed the name to Geirúlfr mac an Gallóglaigh in order to register this name.

If the submitter is interested in a name meaning that he (rather than his father) is a Gallowglass, a registerable name that would have this meaning is Geirúlfr Gallóglach.
