- Aug 10, 2009Good milady,
I am not an expert on Japanese names or culture, nor do I play one on
the tourney field. But I am a long-time herald and I did notice one
issue with your request that you will need to address.
The time period of the SCA is pre-17th century, that is, prior to 1600.
Names to be registered with the College of Arms must be consistent with
naming practices for the specified culture (or cultures), prior to
_1600_. In the case of Japanese names, that would mean, basically,
before the Edo (or Tokugawa) period, which began in 1603.
I wish you best success in your search for a name,
