means, it does not seem out of bounds to suppose that _est(a)-_
means 'utter a name' or 'use a name', the name thus being its
accusative object and _aen_ a dative. The interpretation would
then be 'they(one)-shall-[utter-as-a-name] Fullwise to-him', or
'they(one)-shall-[use-as-a-name] Fullwise for-him'.
