Name Game Question
- Greetings all,
First off I am new to the site and only been into the SCA for about a
year. I have always been itrested in the Japanese culture and so have
decided to atempt a Japanese persona.
I have read most off what I have found online about name construction
and some of the post's on here. One of the posts suggest that you
should find a surname first. With that being said, Does the name have
to be actually documented? If I use the basis of making a name and from
what I have read many people didnt have Surnames in a certian era
unless royalty could i create my surname? My surname in mind at the
moment is "Ryukuni" or "Ryukuni no". Would this name work?
Sorry this has turned out longer than I thought and I appreciate anyone
that actually reads it all =)
2nd half of name or "given name". Given name seems to be a bit easier
kinda like any other name with meaning to it. My only problem is making
sure it actually means what I intend it to. It seems like a combination
of words could mean something completly diferent. With that said the
name I have in mind is "Shinteishiro". Would this work?
So the name I have in mind is "Ryukuni no Shinteishiro"
Thank you any and all that might read this and any and all replys are
appreciated. I know I could have made this shorter but I wanted for all
to know that I have been trying on my own to get this down. I didnt
want to seem like I just jump on here and wanted people to do my work

Greetings from Solveig! In Japan, you can see things written just
about any way except bottom to top. In period, however, you would
generally things written from top to bottom.
Your Humble Servant
