I posted with my normal tag line and then realised it would be very
misleading. I apologise.

Guðroð is Ok as it is and I am not after doing anything with it.

More I'm trying to create a phrase for 'xxxx, Jarl of Skane'.

In other words, a male personal name followed by a title followed by a place

Is that clearer ?

Well... I don't think there's any one-size-fits-all
solution here. It would probably depend on the place
name. If you're thinking about "Colanhomm" then I
suppose that's something Celtic and I'm not sure how
to treat it.

And Guðrøðr or Goðrøðr is probably the ON name you
are looking for.
