The characters are stylised not exact. Maybe the last character is 垉?

Very odd characters for a name, even a "translation" of a Western or other foreign name.

 

Is there more on the embroidery? Is it old?

I wondered if it might be the transliteration of a Manchu name or term but not having much joy with the search tools I have available.

Here's one more photo, with the classic depiction of 2 celestial dragons. could it be "gibberish" for the export market? The quality of the embroidery is very good.

Just throwing ideas out: could this have something to do with a secret society or hocus-pocus magic, that sort of thing?

Of course, sometimes objects used in those sorts of rituals can bring bad luck to someone who doesn't know how to use them properly.

 

So maybe play safe and treat it with due respect.

 

Take care, and good luck.

maybe the name that can be named, is not the real name... so... I'm good with not knowing what it means:)
