1: Bronwyn of Dragon Isle -Resub Appeal of Laurel Return of Name (NP)

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Meaning most important.

Bronwyn gan Ilse Dreigiau is the original name submitted.

This name is returned because it does not follow an attested construction for Welsh names. The submitter intended gan Ilse Dreigiau to mean of Dragon Isle; however, this type of locative byname construction does not appear in the Welsh language. "Period Welsh Models for SCA Households and the Nomenclature Thereof" by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn ( has several examples of Welsh locatives based on islands; in this article, Ynys 'island' is found modified by personal name, size, color, and geographic term. At this time, we do not have evidence that the Welsh word for dragon, draig, falls into one of those categories. We would register this byname as the constructed English locative of Dragon Isle but the submitter does not allow major changes. Therefore, we are forced to return this name.
