SUTHEN (NOTES) (L) BJORNSDATTER Sex: F Birth: ABT 1014 Name: SUTHEN (L) BJORNSDATTER Note: SOME SOURCES SAY SUTHEN WAS THE MOTHER OF DUNCAN (NOTES) MORMAER OF (L) MORAY AND OF MALCOLM III (NOTES) (1057-1093) (L) SCOTLAND
Father: BJORN BIORN ESTRI (NOTES) DENMARK (L) ULFUSSON b: BET 953 AND 1001
Marriage 1 DUNCAN I (NOTES) KING (1034-1040) (L) SCOTLAND b: BET 1001 AND 1013 in ANTHOLL, PERTHSHIRE, SCOTLAND
The Chronicle of John of Fordun records that Duncan's wife was "the cousin of Earl Siward". The Foundation for Medieval Genealogy  states "This information is not included in any earlier source and should be considered dubious." The foundation also states, "In one earlier king list, King Malcolm III's mother is named "Suthen"".
Other, more recent, sources suggest Earl Siward and Sybilla may be siblings. Sybilla was the daughter of Bjorn Bearsson and the sister of Sigurd "Digera" Bjornsson, Earl of Northumbria The children of Sybilla and Duncan were Malcolm the Third, Donald the Third and Maelmuire. The sources for this information referenced by Catherine Evans are, Alan Anderson's EARLY SOURCES OF SCOTTISH HISTORY; AD 500-1286 and Alison Weir's BRITAIN'S ROYAL FAMILIES (revised edition).
Considering that Earl Siward is a Dane, we should assume that Sybilla is also of Danish heritage. As a result her last Name at Birth should end in 'datter'.

Since there were no separate countries like we have today in Scandanavia, the patrynomic systems which vary from Denmark to Finland could all be standardized in the old Norse way: -son for "son of" and -sdottir for daughter of (father's first name) - Nelsson, Nelsdottir.
This would streamline names. Since 1850 only Iceland still uses the feminine ending. All others are masculine and no longer change with generations. Another possibility is to default to father's first name without a gender ending so siblings can be matched more easily. (Nels and Nels) In any case, all old Norse names should begin with the father's first name, which means the names will change with each generation in ancient times.
