Re: [SCA-JML] Lady Samurai - names
- What do the names of the various famous fighting female samurai mean?
I think there was one called Tomoe Gozen in 12th Century Japan.
Then there was one who was a vassal of Takeda Shingen - as far as I can
tell, she started off as a bandit's daughter and ended up running a small
unit of female samurai before getting shot by Kenshin.... If I'm to believe
the old Shingen series and the Heaven & Earth movie (not great sources, I
know). Can't remember her name though.
Does anyone know of any others?

I have a Japanese persona my real life better half has a Scottish
I am right there with you. My better half's persona is Norse and we
had a 2 SCA years of discussion as to whether she would take my
nihonji name or what. She end up assuming a "regional" name and named
herself Lezlie of Silverhart, which is where we live. I am not even
sure that Lezlie is norse at all.
