Sound (Argus is the important element. Submitter also wants the sound of Gregor.) most important.

Argus is a 16th century English surname, which can be used as a given name by precedent. [Alton of Grimfells, 4/2010 LoAR, A-East]. ISABEL ARGUS Female Christening 17 December 1592 Ryton, Durham, England JOHN ARGUS Batch: P000841 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J7SK-VFG) JASPER ARGUS Male Christening 17 December 1592 Ryton, Durham, England JOHN ARGUS Batch: P000841 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NBQ2-2QR)

Black (s. n. MacGregor) also notes M'Gregur dated to 1600, McGrigour dated to 1586 and mc gregoure dated to the act of abolition of 1603. Mac Gregour is a plausible interpolation.

The mixing of an English given name and a Scottish byname is a permitted mixing per SENA Appendix C.

No major changes.

Berenger: Talan Gwynek, "Men's Given Names from Early 13th Century England" (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/eng13/eng13m.html)

of the Five Lakes: Sena Appendix A says that the locative pattern 'Of X' is correct for Middle/Early Modern English. The pattern of number+locative element is found occasionally Ekwall, s.n. Sevenoaks dates Sevenak to 1218 and Seuenok to 1230. Ekwall cites both Seofenwyllas and syfan wyllan as locatives documented to the Old English period with the meaning 'Seven Wells' (s.n. Sevenhampton). There are other period locatives which include numerals, e.g. Fourstanys from 1236 and Fourestanes from 1256 with the meaning 'four stones' (Ekwall, s.n. Fourstones). We believe this to be equivalent. In the March 2010 LoAR forÆthelmearc Precedent, [Erik of the three streams], "Ensign found that 'Watts, CDEP-N, p. 613a, offers 'le three bridges' dated to 1613 under 'THREE BRIDGES.'' As Watts is a place name dictionary, this citation supports of the three streams, though of Threestreams would be amuch more common form. We have changed the name to Erik of the three streams to match the pattern found by Ensign, in order to register this name."

The submitter specifically permits the College to drop "the" from the name.
