- Sybill is a potential merge problem due to her unknown origins. Without cutting her off from parents, brother/father (Siward), or deciding on who they should be ... It's a train-wreck waiting to happen.
- There is also a need to determine her LNAB Patrynomics isn't working -- nobody knows who her parents are. So is there a consensus on her House, and what is her final ID?

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.
