Atlantia LoP dated 2019-03-15

Unto Eldred Triton and the Atlantian College of Heralds, Greetings!

Herein for your perusal and commentary are all new items received by March 10 of this year. Commentary on this letter will close April 14.

1: Brynhildr dýrskelfir -New Name

Meaning (terror of the deer, deerhunter, deer killer) most important.

Brynhildr--pg 9, Old Norse Names, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson

dýrskelfir--pg 20 Old Norse Names, Geirr Bassi Haraldsson gives austmannaskelfir--terror of the eastmen

Client wishes to honor her father who taught her to hunt deer and which she does still. Client will accept a byname of Deerhunter, Deertracker, or similar. I would point out several historic Viking women with bynames that are not traditionally female. For example Sigrid the Haughty(or Proud) and Aud the Deep-minded. There is also Jórunn Skádmaer or Poetmaiden--Skalds were, in the main, male. Client will also accept an English byname, or rather a byname in English--for example Gunnhild mother of kings (Queen of Norway 10th C).

Dýr comes from pg 5, English-Old Norse Dictionary, Ross Arthur, York University and Wikitionary
