5: Paidín Fáelad - New Name

Padin - Latinized Irish nominative give name found in S.L. Uckelman, ed. The Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources, Edition 2016, no. 4.

Fáel - personal byname recorded in the DIL in the genitive as mac Laignich Failad. This byname has been registered once by the CoA as Conall Fael (July 1997 via the Middle) with the following comments:

Submitted on the LoI as Conall Fáelán, it had been changed at kingdom from Conall Fael to the form the submitter requested. To the best of our knowledge, Irish does not use unmarked patronyms or given names as bynames, changing the ordinary noun Fáel to the given name Fáelán makes the name less plausible, not more. However, there are a couple of examples of fáel as a personal byname, e.g., in the genitive in mac Laignich Failad (i.e, son of Laignech Fáel), so we are restoring the originally submitted form.

This name was originally submitted as Padin Fáel. Commenter Brían dorcha ua Conaill suggested the more likely versions would be Paidín Fáel "wolfish Paddy" or Paidín Fáelad "wolf's Paddy", "Paddy of the wolf". Golden Pillar consulted with the client to see which of these two meanings he preferred. As he preferred "Paddy 'Patrick' of the wolf" kingdom has changed this submission to Paidín Fáelad. The client has approved of this change. Brian cited Paidín in DMNES as a diminutive of Pádraig. Brian's citation for Fáelad was Rawl. B502.

al-Shiraziyyah - This byname meaning "of Shiraz" is mentioned as registrable in the name change of Azza al-Shiraziyya in April 2014 via Atlantia.

The client prefers the submitted form Sajah al ish Shirazyyah, but will accept Sajah al-Shiraziyyah or Sajāḥ al-Sharzīyah if necessary. She adds that the submitted form was documented in an email she received from Da'ud, but that email has been lost.

Commenters in kingdom agreed that the "al ish" part of this name is not correct. But, since the client is adamant that it be considered, kingdom is sending this name up unchanged.
