East ILoI dated 2014-04-02

Thanks to a very active consulting table at Mudthaw (many thanks to Yehuda and Charitye for manning that table with me), we have a big letter this month.

Commenters are reminded that the purpose of commentary is to help Eastern Crown make a decision about whether to forward submissions to Society-level review or not. Commentary should be short and concise whenever possible. Commentary should be focused. If a lengthy explanation is required, a summary line or two at the end of the comment would be extremely helpful.

Also keep in mind that Eastern Crown does not make broad-ranging policy decisions about things like the surname-as-given name rule. Arguing about such issues in Kingdom commentary won't accomplish much because Kingdom can't change those policies.

Submitter desires a feminine name.

Consulting herald: Alys

The submitter's original name, Nyfain merch Coel was returned on the 20 August 2013 East Kingdom LoD due to a lack of documentation for the name elements. Among other things:

No evidence was provided to rebut the May 2007 precedent stating that Nyfain is a wholly modern form and therefore unregisterable. The submitter might want to consider the 5th cen. Latinized form Nemania or one of the forms actually found in the period texts. . . .

Her device was returned at the same time for lack of a name.

The submitter has opted for the 5th cen. Latinized form Nemania, which is found s.n. Nyfain in "Names of Women of the Brythonic North in the 5-7th Centuries," by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/brythonic/nyfain.html). Nemania has previously been ruled to be registerable. [Nemania Brigans, LoAR 05/2007, An Tir-A].

The byname is based on "The First Thousand Years of British Names," by Tangwystyl verch Morgant Glasvryn (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/british1000/part2.html#oldwelsh1), which gives the pattern filia + [genitive form of the father's name] for female names.

Huweli is the probable genitive form of the Old Welsh masculine name Huwel, which is found in the Llandav Charters, according to Tangwystl's article (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/british1000/appendix4_5.html#app4).
