Cunningness ("Cunnyng") is a virtue of heralds, from "The Othe of the Kynges of Armes in their Creacion", found in The Black Book of the Admiralty, vol 1 pp295-297, by Sir Travers Twiss, where it is found on p296: "Secondly, ye shal doo your trewe devoire to be everry day more comyng", with a footnote that "connyng" or "cunnyng" is probably intended
"Kunnandi" is the participle form of the Old Norse "kunna", the virtuous sense of "to be cunning" found in Cleasby-Vigfusson at https://cleasby-vigfusson-dictionary.vercel.app/word/kunna. Participle seems appropriate for a heraldic title.
"kallari" is the masculine form of "crier" or "herald" (https://cleasby-vigfusson-dictionary.vercel.app/word/kallari).
Submitter added more found after submission, noting most "herald" words were in the aspect of Voice which is not the submitter's chosen heraldic service:

Kingdom commentors believe the submitter is trying to construct a late Byzantine surname using a word for "starry". They found a few ancient Greek names in the LGPN based on the word for star, including feminine Asteria and masculine Asterios and feminine Asterin and masculine Asterinus. Plausible constrution of Classical Greek or early Byzantine Latin.
