Ealdor-Bana

Ealdor or Aldor is related to the modern English word “Elder” and was used in Old English to mean either an ancestor or superior, or a lifespan in general. A “Bana” meanwhile was a killer or destroyer, or a weapon that had been used to cause death. So, an “EaldorBana“, literally means a “LifeDestroyer“,  murderer, or something with fatal or murderous consequences.
