If a name is registerable you can find a herald to help you with the forms,
suggesting, maybe this name was not thought registerable.

Eule means owl in German.  It may also mean a potter but the spelling is a
bit in question there.  It is a surname in German but no trace of its use as
a given name turned up.  Animals get used as bynames regularly in German but
I find only a very rare few used as given names.

Haginbald sounds German but a Google search showed no such place in Germany.
 The only returns were SCA related.
It might be constructable but that is another issue.

Ask the submitter where the name was documented from or where the name came
from.  He must have some source that he found it in and liked it.
