Hmm. The capital D could go either way. It’s close to other Ds on the page, but there is a subtle difference. It does look like a lowercase c rather than an s, though. Handwriting’s always a bit tricky. But, in favor of your interpretation, there are 3 Tennessee Ursulas in the 1920 census–and no Draculas. I don’t know if the soon-to-be Mrs. Taylor was in Tennessee still in 1920, but Dracula doesn’t seem to be.

Selma Maria Elisabet Tyra Asta Anna Konstantia Agnes Ester Barbro Margareta Axelsdotter
She was born in Karlstads Stadsförsamling in Värmland,Sweden on 13 March 1900. Her parents were
Karl Axel Nerman and Zelma Julia Maria Olin.
He had been married previously and had five children from that marriage. The second marriage
produced a son and then this child. All the other children were given two or three names. Either these names were a leftover collection or all the other children had a hand in naming her. They are all in my family tree.
