The previous submission, Taiyoyama no Konomata Haruyuki, weas returned on the December 2016 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2016-11-lop/1612-lor.html) with the following: {Returned for documentation issues. No actual documentation was provided for the 'Konomata' name element. The plausability of Taiyoyama is also a concern as the documentation is questionable even with the supporting documentation provided in the ILoI commentary for the submission. Kingdom encourages the submitter to consult with a herald who has Japanese name construction experience to make sure the name construction is valid and fully documented.}

The name Taiyoyama no Ryota Haruyuki is constructed according to acceptable Japanese forms according to https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/solveig/nanori/ in Saint Gabriel

TAIYOYAMA is the submitted as a family name and uses characters for Sun (Taiyo) and Mountain

(-yama) to represent the residential locale of Pikes Peak. Construction of Japanese family names

shows it is logical for a nanori or family name in https://www.s-gabriel.org/2019.

"SUN" is a Japanese sigil pronounced TAIYO. It can be found at: Taiyoyama no Ryota HaruyukiJapahwwwhttps://www.google.com/ webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espvcocRyotac=2&ie=UTF-8#q=english+to+japanese

The second portion of the family name, "YAMA", appears in http://www.s-gabriel.org/2019

RYOTA is a contraction as shown in http://sengokudaimyo.com/ and from which the Japanese naming information regarding name contractions can be found at http://www.sengokudaimyo.com/miscellany/names.html .

HARUYUKI - The combined name "HARUYUKI" is found under the letter "H" in https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/solveig/nanori/nanorih.html

HARU and YUKI also can be found in NANORI charts compiled by Anthony J. Bryant, a.k.a. SCA: Baron Edward of Effingham, O.Pel, OL, at http://www.sengokudaimyo.com/miscellany/names.html which shows that "HARU" and "YUKI" which can be combined into the name "HARUYUKI".
