ANSTHRLD - Too much documentation?!

Wesaþ ge hal!
I have a question-- when is it too much documentation to register a name.
My case is probably unusual as I am trying to compile the sources for an
essentially "Runic" name. My persona is 5th century and, while an Angle
(with a mixed Scandinavian heritage), is still living on the continent in
the Angeln district. I was trying for CuniricaR CuniwardingaR Wulfiricinga
which would be the Old English equivilant of Cyniric Cyniwarding Wulfricinga
(the last being a family/clan name).
I have found bits and pieces here and there. The Gallahus horn, a golden
horn dated to 450 ce (persona was born in 435), is from the area and reads
as Ek HlewegastiR HoltingaR horno tawido : I, Hlewgast, son of Holt, made
this horn." The Leeds stone in England has half of a name containing the
"cuni" element using the specific "u" rune. The rune denoting "y" in the
Cynwulf texts was much later. I have a few other inscription which may help
I know it seems annoying but I really want to keep true to my persona (I
do aspire to be a Lion someday) and can do the research. I just want to
know what is the best way to present it. If Laurel, or Kingdom for that
matter, is going to reject it for too much documentation, then I will go
with the 7th century Northumbrian.
