2: Giata Magdalena Alberti -New Household Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2010, via Gleann Abhann.

House of the Golden Lilie

Meaning most important.

The household name is based on English inn sign names. "English Sign Names," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan ( http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/mari/inn/ ) does not show a <color> + <item> example (there are <color>+<animal> examples), but her article "English Sign Names From 17th Century Tradesman's Tokens"

( http://www.medievalscotland.org/kmo/Tokens/Patterns.shtml ), does, such as Golden Anchor, Gilt Frying Pan, and Golden Plow. The existence of a lily flower in merchant ship name inventories (See "lilly" under flora & fauna here http://www.ellipsis.cx/%7Eliana/names/other/ships.html) suggest that a lily would be a recognizable flower.

The Middle English Dictionary has: (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/m/med/ )

-> golden (adj.) Also goldein, golding, colden.: 3. Having the color of gold, golden, yellow; shining like gold.

-> lilie (n.) 1a. The plant of the Madonna lily (Lilium candidum); also, its white flower; -- a symbol of virginity; whit ~, whit as (ani) ~. 1b.

(a) Any of a class of plants including: the Madonna lily, other species of the genus Lilium, certain species of the genus Iris, plants mentioned in the Bible; (1450 Agnus Castus (Stockh 10.90) 167/15: Lylium is an herbe þat men clepe lilie [vr. lyley].)
