'Romund's farm' v. by . The name Romund (DB, P) is from ON Hrómundr , gen. Hrómundar (LindN). The ON gen. -ar is found in the DB spelling, but was dropped at an early date.The mere fact that it does appear in the early form shows that its loss cannot be due to the OEScand loss of -r - before a voiced consonant as in Dromonby 168supra .
