Assuming PBW puts the names in the nominative case, Personal Names of the Aristocracy in the Roman
Empire During the Later Byzantine Era - Feminizing Family Names notes that names ending in -on become
-ina, hence Meliton -> Melitina (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/byzantine/feminizing.html#feminizing_family_names)

The documentation shows the attested byname is "Chienast."

Brían dorcha ua Conaill (Ex-Rocket) at 2017-03-29 01:32:18 (Reply)
On a quick google, <Kienast> appears to be a modern surname of Austrian origin.
I don't know about 13C German, but FamilySearch has for early 17C Swiss:

<Margredt Kienast> married <Jocki Heiniman> 15 Sep 1629, Protestantisch, Bubendorf, Basel, Switzerland; batch M92244-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FVNY-PH9)
<Margredt Kienast> married <Hanss Mueller> 04 Feb 1634, Protestantisch, Bubendorf, Basel, Switzerland; batch M92244-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FVNY-5H8)
<Margaretha Kienast>, daughter of <Stephan Kienast>, married <Hannss Lackner> 19 Apr 1637, Katholisch, Dobersberg, Niederoesterreich, Austria; Batch M92780-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FVFN-ZF3)
... usw.

Then there's
<Elisabeth Gul>, married <Stäffen Schieg>, 25 May 1600, Steckborn, Thurgau, Switzerland; Batch M97912-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FVNW-ZQ9)
<Elisabeth Suter>, married <Medardus Strasser> 04 Feb 1588, Evangelisch, Nussbaumen, Thurgau, Switzerland; Batch M98544-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FVJS-6MY)
<Elisabeth Abraham>, christened 03 Sep 1581, Basel, Basel-Stadt, Switzerland; Batch C92753-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FV8K-6BF)
<Elisabeth Ackermann>, christened 26 Feb 1573, Basel, Basel-Stadt, Switzerland; Batch C92753-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FV8K-X68)

Also: <Elsbeht Kienast>, mother of <Magdalena Schuerch>, who was christened 07 Sep 1628, PROTESTANTISCH, BUBENDORF, BASEL, SWITZERLAND; Batch C92244-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FVXT-DMW)

All told, the submission would appear to be very nice indeed for end of period Basel. Failing that, changing <Kienast> to <Chienast> shouldn't be a major change, IIRC.

Michael Gerard Curtememoire at 2017-03-29 10:38:51 (Reply)
Scott, the source, also authorizes <Kienast>: "Headwords entirely in upper-case are normalized Middle High German (MHG) forms"--not modern, MHG.

Emmeline
Emmeline Coombe, female, christened 1610, England. Batch no. C05188-1

House of surname
The March 2013 LoAR states "Examples that use only given names, only
surnames, or only titles are used in limited contexts. ... For surnames,
X's House or X House are mostly found in references to actual
buildings rather than to people, though they may sometimes be used to
refer to the people living in such a building. House of X seems to
have been used largely to refer to noble dynasties (like the House of
Lancaster
and House of York). All of these patterns are
registerable.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
