The November 2016 LoAR sn. Lars Gulli Bjorn ( notes:

"...double bynames in Old Norse are permitted if both can reasonably describe the same person." If this is applicable here is somewhat doubtful, given the earliest name element is 12th century. The closest precedent I can think of, is on the June 2015 LoAR: sn. Egil Drake howd.


"Although the pattern of double bynames is found in Appendix A of SENA for Old Icelandic, and the pattern animal + head is attested in that language, neither pattern is listed for the various Scandinavian languages after c. 1100. After the Pelican decision meeting , ffride wlffsdotter documented several 12th-15th century examples of occupation + descriptive by name or occupation + descriptive byname + patronym from Norway and Iceland in Lind Personbinamn. Therefore, we can give the submitter the benefit of the doubt that other double descriptive bynames are plausible as well, but the name is not likely to be authentic for the submitter's desired place and time."

3: Margot Becker - New Release of Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: filing name should not be registered for a primary name change. It was, in in December of 2017, via Gleann Abhann.

Old Item: Ella Strasser, to be released.

Margot - As you noted, <Margot> is found in the 1292 Census of Paris [1]. This is itself a short form of <Marguerite>, a name ultimately derived from the Greek word for "pearl" [2]. Although we only have a few examples of

<Margot> in period, it was probably available for most of the period of

time in which you are interested. It may not have been at all common, but

our sources are spotty enough that we really can't tell. <Margot> was

pronounced the same way it is now for most of your period, mar-go, but

may have been pronounced mar-GOHT in the earliest part of it. (
