Old Item: Wentlyana Woodville, to be retained as an alternate name.
Based on commentary received outside of Oscar from Saiyyda Tala al-Zahra (copied below), the submitter wishes to register with the transliteration: Zarah bat Chesed:
I'm working with Juliana de Luna. She's asked me to go through her works and fix the transliterations of names (Hebrew and Arabic) that were incorrectly noted in the (often) Spanish language books she used as reference. That's the background - now onto the entry:
Zarra - Feminine given name found in Santa Columa de Queralt, 1293-1300. Compiled in "A sample of Jewish names in Valencia 1293-1485" by Yehoshua ben Haim haYerushalmi http://heraldry.sca.org/names/Jewish/names_in_valencia.html
bat - patronymic marker, "daughter of"
Hesed - masculine name found as H.esed in "Jewish Names in the World of Medieval Islam: compiled by Yehoshua ben Haim haYerushalmi http://heraldry.sca.org/names/Jewish/Cairo/cairo_men.html
Thank you very much for your kind attention.
