Gleann Abhann LoI dated 2017-11-20

Здравствуйте!

Unto All the glorious company of the College of Heralds do I, Дочь боярская Гроза Новгородская of the Ram Kingdom of Gleann Abhann, bring salutations on this , my very last letter to the Glorious Commentors and to the Glorious Sovereigns. Yes, indeed, this is my Very Last Official Letter As Ruby Herald. After this, it will be Evlaliia Svenevicha Ruby! (She doesn't use Cyrillic, so Emma Postmeeting Clerk can breathe easy.)

So with no further ado, the letter.

However, due to the wonderful and marvelous ffride wlffsdotter, it was uncovered that the submitted grammar was incorrect. This led to some great snickering in the kingdom, great poking was had at heralds, and permission was received from the submitter to correct the grammar to submit the name for something even more appropriate.

(I am supposed to be getting signed paperwork for the packet, I did get verbal permission, I may have to hold him down at an event for the signed paperwork.)

SENA Appendix A for Swedish says -dottir requires no further documentation, so "Inga Josepsdottir" would be a fine name.

As the submitter wished a Swedish name, Kingdom has changed the name from Jósep to Josep as per ffride's finding.
