Submission History

This is a resubmission after the December 2017 Kingdom return of Fíne illfjúka:

"This name must be returned for insufficient documentation. All examples given for the prefix ill- in Norse bynames were as adjectives(evil-counselor, evil-thinker, evil-boder) describing a person. As a snowstorm does not fit the category of a person, we feel that further documentation would be needed to establish the pattern desired."

Submission History
