Thanks for your answer and the interesting links!
The German site says the origin is Old English or Old German: http://www.heiligenlexikon.de/BiographienC/Cyneburg_von_Mercien.htm They are not a name site but a site about saints. However they are usually reliable. Lots of names which have a German orgin include the element "burg". That might have led them to believe that Cyneburg(a) could partly be Old German. I guess "burg" was used by Old English speakers as well and Cyneburg(a) is 100 percent Old Englsih.
