5: Katalena Ivaniaia zhena Shishova - New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in May of 2018, via the Middle.

Old Item: Kateline Eliot, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Culture (Rus) most important.

Submitter wishes to construct a plausible name that her English persona of Kateline Eliot would have adopted upon moving to Novgorod with her husband, Ivan Shishov, and which denotes their relationship as husband and wife.

<Katalena> "(f) -- Katalena. 1442. [Mor 98]"

<zhena> "In addition to being named after one's father, upon being married, many women became known through their husbands. The actual grammatical constructions were similar, except for the replacement of doch' with zhena [wife]. Most examples also include the husband's patronymic/surname added as an extra byname..."

Construction:

"It was not necessary for Russian names to follow the modern given name-patronymic-surname (G-P-S) construction. Many constructions were possible...

To make life even more complex, the order of the elements was not fixed in medieval usage, so bynames could proceed given names." Paul Goldschmidt's Dictionary of Russian Names - Grammar (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/zgrammar.html)
