Consulting Herald: self

Ey- is found on the Viking Answer Lady's page (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml#e) for women's names s.n. Eybjorg:

The first element Ey- (or before a vowel, Eyj-) is of uncertain origin but may derive from *auja, "fortune, gift." The Cleasby-Vigfusson dictionary states that while the second element -ey may be related to the word for island, from Primitive Scandinavian *awió, when it appears as the first element Ey- or Eyj- then the word comes from a different root.

draumr is an Old Norse word meaning "dream" found in Cleasby & Vigfusson (http://lexicon.ff.cuni.cz/html/oi_cleasbyvigfusson/b0104.html). The submitter quotes the entry in its entirety, so we will do the same:

DRAUMR, m. [A. S. dream; Hel. drorn; Engl. dream; Swed. -Dan. drain; Germ, traum; Matth. i. and ii, and by a singular mishap Matth. xxvii. 19, are lost in Ulf., so that we are unable to say how he rendered the Gr. ôvap'. -- the A. S. uses dream only in the sense of joy, music, and dreamer= a bar per, musician, and expresses draumr, Engl. dream, by sveofnas, -- even the Ormul. has drœm = a sound; so that the Engl. dream seems to have got its present sense from the Scandin. On the other hand, the Scandin. have dream in the proper sense in their earliest poems of the heathen age, ballir draumar, Vtkv. I; Hvat er þat draurna, Em. I; it is used so by Bragi Gamli (8th century), Edda 78 (iu a verse); cp. draum-þing, Hkv. 2. 48, whilst the A. S. sense of song is entirely strange to Icel.: it is true that svefnar (pl.) now and then occurs in old poets = Lat. somnium, but this may be either from A. S. influence or only as a poetical synonyme. Which of the two senses is the primitive and which the metaph. ?] :-- a dream. Many old sayings refer to draumr, -- vakandi d., a day dream, waking dream, like the Gr. virap; von er vakandi draumr, hope is a waking dream, or von er vakanda maims d.; ekki er mark at draumum, dreams are not worth noticing, Sturl. ii. 217; opt er Ijotr d. fyrir litlu, Bs. ii. 225. Icel, say, marka drauma, to believe in dreams, Sturl. ii. 131; seg^a e-m draum, to tell one's dream to another, Nj. 35; ráða dranm, to read (interpret) a dream, Fms. iv. 381, x. 270, xi. 3; draumr raetisk, the dream proves true, or (rarely) draum (acc.) ræsir, id., Bret.; vakna við vándan (eigi góðan) draum, to wake from a bad dream, of a sudden, violent awakening, Fms. iii. 125, ix. 339, Stj. 394. Judg. viii. 21, 22; vakna af draumi, to waken from a dream; dreyma draum, to dream a dream; láta e-n njóta draurns, to let one enjoy his dream, not wake him: gen. draums is used adverb, in the phrase, e-m er draums, one is benumbed, dreamy: stóð hann upp ok fylgði englinum, ok hugði sér draums vera, Post. 656 C; draums kveð ek ber vera, Hkv. Hjorv. 19; þótti honum sjálfum sern draums hefði honum verit, 0. H. L. 81; hence comes the mod. e-m er drums, of stupid insensibility. Passages referring to dreams -- Hkr. Hálfd. S. ch. 7, Am. 14. 25, Edda 36, lb. ch. 4, Nj. ch. 134, Ld. ch. 33, Gunnl. S. ch. 2, 13, Harð. S. ch. 6, Lv. ch. 21 (very interesting), Gísl. ch. 13, 24 sqq., Glúm. ch. 9, 21, þorst. Síðu H., Vápn. 21, Bjarn. 49, Fbr. ch. 16, 37, fiorl. S. ch. 7, Sturl. i. 200, 225, ii. 9, 99, 190, 206-216, iii. 251-254, 272, RafnsS. ch. 7, 14, Laur. S. ch. 2, 65, Sverr. S. ch. I. 2. 5, 42, Fms. vi. 199, 225, 312, 403, 404, vii. 162, Jóinsv. S. ch. 2, etc. etc. COMPDS: drauma-maðr, m. a great dreamer, Gísl. 41. drauma- ráðning, f. the reading of dreams, Anal. 177. drauma-skrimsl, n. a dream monster, phantasm, Fas. ii. 414. drauma-vetr, m., Gísl. 63.

The submitter wants to combine these elements into a given name Eydraumr.

The first element Úlf- is found on the Viking Answer Lady's page (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml#u) s.n. Úlfeiðr:

The first element Úlf- is identical to Old Icelandic úlfr, "wolf".

The element Orm meaning "dragon" is also found on the Viking Answer Lady's page (http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONWomensNames.shtml#o) s.n. Ormhildr:

The first element Orm- is identical with Old Icelandic ormr, "serpent, snake, dragon."

The submitter wants to combine these elements into a second name, Ulform.
