A quick google turns up no names (first result was a Slovakian company name).

Rik (or ric) endings are usually germanic, such as Ala-ric. Ric implies power or rule - fitting for a king (or a duke)

Lla is probably derived from the welsh Llew or Lleu, which means Lion.

So a haldane is named 'lion king' (no disney jokes, please) which fits with their heraldry. However, there's also the minor point of lion lore that they eat lion cubs (not necessarily their own) which would fit with a king who killed some of his own sons.

Thank you all.

I don't know her well, but she was kind enough to grab me and my cat (basically sight unseen on the basis of Friend in Virginia's word) and haul us all on a 16-hour road trip there and about a 17-hour trip back, so we got a good bit of conversation time in while on the road and while in Virginia, and she seems like a very kind, intelligent, level-headed young woman, and this has to be a pretty hard blow for anyone to take, especially if it was as abrupt as it seems to have been.

I was thinking the reign of Llarik also... the Evil Haldane.
I was mentioning the name to someone who spoke Welsh, and they said to me that Llarik could not be a Welsh name, as there is no "K" in Welsh.  Not something I had noticed.  Any comments from my betters?

I don't know enough about Welsh linguistics to say, so I'll bow to the knowledge of your Welsh-speaking friend/acquaintance, but perhaps Llarik is a name of mixed linguistic heritage, as happens sometimes?  I could see, in the real world, the existence of some names that are a hybrid between one of the Celtic languages and Old Norse, or a Celtic language and Anglo-Saxon/Old English, or all three, for that matter.
