Greetings to all,

I have a member who is wanting an early (7-8c) Saxon female name.  She likes Nerienda and wants a patronymic surname 
(father's name will be Alric).  While I can find a lot about forming male patronymics, I  have found precious little about 
female.  I have seen the attachment of -dottir as one way of doing it, but is that correct for that early time period?  If 
not, what is the proper way to form the byname?

Thank you for your help.
