[Abbatia] - Latin Translation of English word `abbey'

Abbey is dated in this spelling to 1250 in the OED. Household designators are based on groups of people in period. An abbey is place where a group of people lives together. The August 2008 LoAR (v.

[Porta] - Latin Translation of English word `gate'

[Leonis] - Latin Translation of English word `lion'

Precedent states that "Abbeys are clearly named for placenames and for their patron saints." [Monique Marie Sauniere, Household name Flaxen Abbey, 9/2011 LoAR, R-Caid]

The Lion's Gate is one of the seven Gates in the Walls of Old Jerusalem. The Lions' Gate is located on the north-east walls of the old city of Jerusalem, leading to the Via Dolorosa.

Porta Leoni is also an ancient Roman gate in Verona, northern Italy.
