Trimaris LoI dated 2017-05-31

Following is the May Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of Trimaris. Many apologies for the tardiness, there will be an extra External to catch up published within a week of this one, my apologies to the College of Heralds and we understand if the decisions on these letters are justifiably delayed.

Yours in Service,

Merewyn - Found as a female given name in "Anglo-Saxon Women's Names from Royal Charters," Marieke van de Dal, http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/marieke/anglosaxonfem/, from the Latin forms Merewenne and Merwenna both dated to 966-7.

"Merewyn: is found in an Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 2544 by Arval Benicoeur published on 28 May 2002 http://www.panix.com/~gabriel/public-bin/showfinal.cgi/2544.txt <Merewyn> is a somewhat unusual spelling of the name <Mærwynn>. (The symbol æ represents the letter aesc, written as an a-e ligature.) It also appears as <Merewenne> and <Merwenna> in 10th century charters, but these are Latinized spellings [1]. There is only one known bearer of this name in pre-Norman England, a 10th century abbess of Romsey [2]. It is therefore not as typical a name as <Wulfwyn>, but it still a good choice. It was pronounced roughly MAAR-wu"n, where AA represents the vowel in <cat>, but with longer duration."
