2: Elska á Fjárfelli -New Name Change

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

Old Item: Unnr á Fjárfelli, to be retained as an alternate name.
Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound (ELL-skuh) most important.

Herald of Record: Yehuda ben Moshe

This client previously submitted Elska á Fjárfelli, which was returned on the April 2016 LoAR:

The Letter of Intent stated that bynames are occasionally adopted as given names. However, no evidence was provided to show that Elska ("love, beloved") is a plausible byname from which a given name could be derived. Therefore, we are unable to register this name.

Client subsequently submitted Unnr in elska á Fjárfella, which was changed in the March 2017 LoAR to the currently documented/registered form.

Submitted as Unnr in elska á Fjárfella, no documentation could be found to support the pattern of [given name] + [descriptive byname] + [locative byname] in Old Norse. With the submitter's permission, we dropped the descriptive byname in elska for registration.

In addition, with the submitter's permission, we have changed the locative byname to á Fjárfelli to comply with Old Norse grammar. ffride Joye sans fin constructed the byname á Fjárfelli ("on livestock's hill") from the farm name Fjár-fell, using examples from the Landnámabók and Lind Personbinamn, s.n. Fiár.

Elska is a late period German name found in early 17th century Prussia in the FamilySearch Historical Records:

"Deutschland Geburten und Taufen, 1558-1898," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NTSB-93N : 28 November 2014), Elska Utendal, 17 Dec 1617

"Deutschland Geburten und Taufen, 1558-1898," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NP8R-73B : 28 November 2014), Elska Von Hulss, 02 May 1622

á Fjárfelli is grandfathered to the submitter, as it is her currently registered by-name.


3: Finos Ithakâs -Resub Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in April of 1992, via Atlantia.

Old Item: Finn Marland O'Shannon, to be released.
No major changes.
Meaning (Finos of Ithaca) most important.

Herald of Record: Saiman Tokushou

Finos: Page 26 of Volume 5a of the "Lexicon of Greek Personal Names" (www.lgpn.ox.ac.uk/publications/vol1/documents/v5afortop.pdf).
