Calontir ILoI dated 2017-09-27

Wesaþ hal!

To Saito Takauji Gold Falcon and the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Dorcas Whitecap, Eyas. I seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration:

1: Al-Ma'iz Da'ud ibn Al-Kabsh Al-Garnati -New Name

Al-Ma'iz Da'ud ibn Al-Kabsh Al-Garnati

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (Arabic) most important.
Meaning (the Goat, son of the Ram) most important.

This name follows the pattern laqab + ism + nasab + nisba suggested in "Traditional Muslim Names" by Annemarie Schimmel. Paper copy attached. https://cmes.uchicago.edu/sites/cmes.uchicago.edu/files/uploadsTraditional%20Muslim%20Names.pdf

Al-Ma'iz - laqab meaning "the goat" - translated via Cambridge English-Arabic Dictionary (http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english-arabic/goat)

al-Garnati - nisba found in "Andalusian Names: Arabs in Spain" by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/andalusia.html#Locative)

To support a laqab that is an "animal name", please consider the following.

"Period Arabic Names and Naming Practices" by Da'ud ibn Auda (David B. Appleton) (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/arabic-naming2.htm) includes:

cognomen (laqab used as ism) <al-Asadi>, which means "the lion" (https://tinyurl.com/y9339brh)

cognomen (laqab used as ism) <al-Saqr> meaning "the falcon" (https://tinyurl.com/y7vp5zvq)

To support a nasab based on an "animal name", please consider the following.

"Son of the Hot-Tempered Woman": Women's Names in Arabic Bynames by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith) (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/ArabicMatronymics/) lists multiple examples of nasabs meaning "son of <animal>", including Ibn Baqara - "son of the cow", Ibn Naqa - "son of the she-camel"
