      Noble Cousins!

      Greetings from Solveig!

      Concerning Japanese Buddhist Names in Religion - Please consult www.demoivre.org/Japan/Houmyou.pdf Mon'in 門院 is a retirement title given to high ranking females. Houshinnou 法親王 and Nyuudoushinnou 入道親王 are retirement titles given to high ranking males. Otherwise, most two part names in the main list are the names of Zen priests and monks. Consider using the first name of one of the Zen monks as a first name and either one of the single names or one of the second names as a second name with the order <first name><second name> Please do not use a full name appearing in the list itself as this is the name of a historic person. Following the date (which is usually the date of death of the person with that name) is the page number in 『鎌倉・室町人名事典』Kamakura - Muromachi Jinmei Jiten 1990 ISBN: 440401757X where the name can be found. Other references were also consulted and are mentioned at the bottom of the document. This document is a draft and is undergoing revision. However, the names and dates should remain stable at this point.
