A merge has been proposed between https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Isle-3 and https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Isles-15 daughter of Ranald/Ragnall Somerled "Lord of Isles" mac Somahirle.

What would be the proper LNAB for her?  I've added PPP to Isles-15 until the LNAB is determined.

The name Ragnhild is definitely Norse, and I see that several of her siblings are entered with a patronymic LNAB. In my opinion she should be a Ragnaldsdatter.

Darlene, thanks for that! I think it would be good to sort out the families and sources before we merge anything anyway. I've found a Scots Peerage source, which makes no mention of the name of the wife of either Angus or his son Seamus (Ragnhild was linked as the wife of both of them). I have unlinked Ragnild as wife of Seamus for the moment. Now I see that Ragnhild is linked as the daughter of Angus's brother Ranald MacSomerled-1. I'm happy to keep working on it, but if someone with more experience in the area wants to take it on, please don't think you'll be treading on my toes!!!
