Lasairfhíona - Irish Gaelic female name Found in Index of Names in Irish Annals: Feminine Given Names, medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/all.shtml, Section: Feminine Given Names (listed alphabetically), Heading: Lasairfhíona more specifically Feminine Given Names: Lasairfhíona, medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Lasairfhiona.shtml "Feminine Given Names: Lasairfhíona Spellings: What we know as a set of Irish Annals are manuscripts that were each compiled during a particular time period, usually using older material as sources. For example, when the Annals of the Four Masters were written from 1632 to 1636, they covered events that occurred centuries and millenia before (including legendary history). So, when an entry in this set of annals refers to a person who lived in the year 738, the spelling used for that person's name is very likely not using the spelling that would have been used in 738. Standard forms of this name (based on spelling systems of different periods) would be: Early Modern Irish Gaelic (c1200-c1700) form: Lasairfhíona Frequency & Dates: Number of women found in the annals with this name: 11 Found in Years: 1239, 1279, 1282, 1363, 1373, 1381, 1418, 1419, 1436, 1454, 1456, 1457, 1527

Corrado Eremita" "http://books.google.com/books?id=Dep7u16SaDoC" Submitter would prefer the Norman-Sicilian form if it can be found.
