Very early Norse lines as part of Euro Aristo group or do we need another one?

+10 votes
I haven't gotten a few different merge requests for my early Norse ancestors, like Eysteinsson-10, and was curious what the group's thoughts are on names. For right now, I have used what I saw as the standard-adding son/dotter to the father's name and such, but didn't know if there were other thoughts on this. I was also curious if there are ideas on a good source for comparing/verifying dates and places with those very old profiles. I know my original source for many of them was just another tree, but the longer I look into our family history, the more I want to make sure I am finding real sources-as best I can as I know sometimes with some of this it is very difficult.

I know there was some serious merge requests that went on with one wikitree member about a year ago, but there are still a lot of profiles that need cleaned up and wasn't sure if a new discussion was needed or if this would fall under the aristocracy group.

I am half Danish and have become absorbed in just that project lately. I would appreciate knowing about your research.  I found a great help to me in this source It has these listings.

I just today put links to those sites on the names listed in the first two categories.

As long as the job is getting done, it is the end result thst matters. Technically, a Norse group could focus on those that aren't aristocratic, but then, where would the line be drawn. Norse invaders of Britain became monarchs that intermarried with et alia later... What about the early Czars of Kievan Rus?
