Re: [SCA-JML] Name Game
- I'll see if I can find that book, it looks helpfull, I doubt I could pull of the boy thing any ways. lol. I'll head down to the library after my next class, maybe I'll get lucky.
How about Hakashime? From the Nara period, it means "Sword". (from Solveig
Throndardottir's Name Construction in Medieval Japan p.375). Or Sugurime?
"Conquer/Triumph" (NCMJ, p. 384, also Nara period.) Tatsuko "Dragon" from
the Muromachi period (NCMJ, p. 385). Or heck, have fun and be the "pretty
little flower" that beats the stuffing out of old Sven the Terrible. It
might make the victory all the sweeter.
There are a lot of choices--you might try to get ahold of this book via
interlibrary loan or check if your local herald has it.
But please don't pretend to be a boy. It's much classier to be a lady fighter.

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.
