Annar is a feminine given name found in Germany in the FamilySearch Historical Records: Annar Herlinger; Female; Death; Oct 1634; Württemberg, Germany; Batch: B05286-0 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWP1-WQ3)
Although they do not appear in Appendix A, German does use matronymic bynames. The August 2012 CL states: ""Matronymic bynames are not infrequently found in French and German…. In German, both unmarked and marked examples are found: Dietrich Elisabet (dated to 1289 in Bahlow s.n. Elisabeth), Arnold Ittensun (dated to 1300 in Bahlow s.n. It(t)ensohn), and Henneke Katerinen son (dated to 1336 in Bahlow s.n. Katerina)."
In addition, Hans Bahlow. 1979. "Metronymika. Frauennamen des Mittelalters als
Familiennamen." Zeitschrift für deutsches Altertum und deutsche Literatur, 108 (4): 448- 466 (http://www.jstor.org/stable/20656394) contains the following examples of marked matronymics:
p. 455 sn. Hildegund - Clawes Hilleken sone 1317
p. 460 sn. Swanhild, Swanburg - Nic. Zweneken sone 1329
p. 461 sn. Wicburg, Wibe(ke) - Nekels vor Wyben sone, ca. 1320.
Henneke Wibensone, 1355
Joh. filius domine Wibeke 1279
p. 462 sn. Clara - Jorge Nitsche Claren son 1384
p. 464 sn. Katherina - Henneke Katerinen son 1336
Annar is from Württemberg, Germany, where the Low German dialect was spoken. The pattern <father's name + s> + dochter 'daughter' to form a marked patronymic in Low German is found in Aryanhwy merch Catmael's "Women's Surnames in 15th- and 16th-Century Germany" (https://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/womenssurnames.html). Patterns used to form marked patronymics are also allowed for forming marked matronymics.
Therefore, Annars dochter should be a registerable marked matronymic byname.
