of White Castle is a locative byname constructed in accordance with SENA appendix A (of [Location]). White Castle is a castle complex in Monmouthshire, Wales. In active use until 1538.

Client noted similarity between his selected name and Godwin Blacke of Rye (This name was registered in March of 1989 via Atenveldt).
However there is a substantial change in both look and sound with dissimilar by-names, and lack of e on 'Black'.

Construction appears correct for middle/early modern English.
