Gunnar Skullsplitter (Ered Sul): NEW NAME, DEVICE and BADGE
Gules, on a delf argent a raven displayed wings inverted sable.
(Badge) Per fess indented argent and gules, a raven displayed wings inverted per fess indented sable and argent.
The given name is Old Norse, a masculine given name found in Njal’s Saga (translation by Magnus Magnusson and Hermann Pálsson, Penguin Books, p. 365) and as Gunnarr in “Viking Names found in the Landnámabók,” Aryanhwy merch Catmael ( http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/landnamabok.html ). Skull-splitter, a descriptive epithet given to Thorfinn, the sone of Torf-Einar, is also found in Njal’s Saga (p. 182, footnote). Were the submitter interested, an ON term hausakljúfr, means “skull-cleaver,” and this would render the name completely into ON. The submitter is interested in a 10th C. name and will not accept minor changes to the name.
Sæunn kerling (Ered Sul): NEW DEVICE
Argent, a kraken purpure and a chief rayonny azure.
The name appears in the April 2004 Atenveldt LoI.
