Old Item: , to be released.

The submitter is interested in a Croatian name as close to Andruta Hipolitova as possible, where the byname means something like 'daughter of the Hoplite'. Alternatively, a byname meaning 'daughter of the Greek' is acceptable (or even child if only a masculine name can be identified. We have reached out for assistance and would ask for more in commentary. Andruta is a feminine Polish given name from 1558 found in Lillia de Vaux, "A Preliminary Survey of Names from the Historical Dictionary of Personal Names in Białystok" (2011 KWHSS Proceedings). The closest Croatian given name that was found at Pennsic Heralds Point was Andrija, a 13th century form of the Christian name Andrew (hence masculine), found in Walraven van Nijmegen, "Early Croatian Given Names" (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/walraven/croat/).
