Transcription - Mother's Name?

Transcription - Mother's Name?

Hi,

I'm having some trouble deciphering the mother's name on a confirmation record from 1814. The last name looks like Pedersdatter, but the first name...?

The image is from here (number 16) in case that is easier to read than the attachment: http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:NBN:no-a1450-kb20061013010313.....

Hopefully someone can help!

Thanks in advance.

Randi

Common Norwegian feminine given name.

The writer ran out of room on the line and broke the name with "=". That was typical for the time and place. This writer appears to use "=" a great deal.
