Middle ILoI dated 2014-06-17


This is a supplemental ILoI.

This was a submission that was not picked up at Pennsic. Since it was a resubmission within two years there was not fee due but the submitter did not realize they still had to come back and ok the forms so it went into the stack of "unpaid submissions". I was recently contacted to find out if it had been accepted and returned and tracked it down in that small lonely pile of submissions that might have been. Rather that further delay the submission it is being put on its own ILoI.

1: Bjǫrn þursbani -Resub Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (trolls bane/death) most important.

Bjǫrn is a masculine given name in Geirr Bassi, pg 8

þursjabani is a constructed byname, intended to mean "troll's-bane" þurs means "giant, troll" and is found as a byname in Geirr Bassi, as is svartiþurs "black giant, black troll." There are two examples of bynames with the structure X-bani "X-bane" in Geirr Bassi: berserkjabani "beserk's bane" and selsbani "seal's bane." Given that þurs is used to describe at least two people, it should be equivalent to Beserk's bane. We ask for help with the grammar.

Submission history: Returned previous name <Bjorn Ultharsson> in Kingdom on the October 12, 2012 "First Pennsic" ILoAR. The change of byname fixes the reason for return.

In Service to the Client, Kingdom, and College,
