Language (Mongol) most important.

Submitted at Estrella 2007

The current name was registered in August 2006.

A letter from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy is included as documentation. She cites the following:

[Sorkhan]: found as a name element in "Mongolian Naming Practices" by Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy (KWHS Proceedings, 1995, Barony of Caerthe, Kingdom of the Outlands). The specific historical individual cited is Sorkhan Shira, a general under Chinghis Khan.

[Aradai]: Academy of St. Gabriel, "On the Documentation and Construction of Period Mongolian Names" by Baras-aghur Naran1 - per Marta: "The names list in the paper [Marta's paper referenced above] doesn't list Arada (this could also be transliterated as Ariga, or even Aratai - Baras-aghur's citation shows how one term can be transliterated in a number of ways). However, as mentioned in Baras-aghur Naran's article, Arida could be considered as a physical descriptive byname (if one happened to have unusual teeth, perhaps buck teeth or or protruding canines), or as an "occupational" byname Aratai (if one were considered to have the stealth and cunning aspects of some predatory animal). An occupational byname included in Marta's paper includes Arat, "herdsman". "

12: Muirgheal inghean Shitheach - New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2000, via Artemisia

Grima Sjóna

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning most important.

The primary name was registered in December 2000 via Artemisia, the client spelled it as [Sitheach] on this submission, and as I do not have the original files, I would like to confirm that these are the same person... and if the registered spelling is/isn't a typo.

[Grima]: "Viking Names found in the Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael1 From the article: "The surviving versions of Landnámabók date from the second half of the 13th century or a little later, though it has been suggested that it was composed in an early form by Ari Þorgilsson (1068-1148). The initial settlement of Iceland largely took place between 870 and 930, but Landnámabók definitely mentions descendants significantly later than the actual settlement period, at least into the 11th century." The name Grima occurs two or fewer times in the Landnámabók.

[Sjóna]: "Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók" by Aryanhwy merch Catmael1 cites this as a feminine byname meaning "seeress".

Language (Pictish) most important.

[Tancorix]: Academy of St. Gabriel, "A Consideration of Pictish Names" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn1 lists the name Tancorix as a primarily feminine name that could also be masculine. The Roman Britain website2, discussing a settlement at Old Carlisle in Cumbria, says: "For a long time the only epigraphic evidence for the existence of a civil settlement or vicus at Old Carlisle was the tombstone of a native woman named Tancorix (vide supra)."

[of Cait]: University College Cork (Ireland), "Onomasticon Goedelicum: locorum et tribuum Hiberniae et Scotiae (An index, with identifications, to the Gaelic names of places and tribes)"3: "Cait: one of the 7 divisions of Alba under the Cruithne, Bb. 113 a; ¶ Cait, Caithness in Scotl., Sk. i. 186; ¶ v. Inis Cat, Críoch Cat." Academy of St. Gabriel, "A Consideration of Pictish Names" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn4 identified Cait as one of the seven sons of the (possibly legendary) Pictish king Cruithne, for whom regions of Scotland were named (Cait gave his name to Caithness).

[St. James]: a copy of the submitter's driver's license is included - this is the submitter's legal surname. Questions were raised as to the Mundane Name Allowance trumping the College of Arm's precedent for spelling out the word "Saint", so this remains to the College.
