you mention something you've seen online, especially if it's on as vast
and complex a site as the Medieval Names Archive.
I couldn't find anything about the name "Loudose". I found "Loudoce"
in "The First 1000 Years of British Names"
<http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/british1000/>, however. Is
that the name you meant? It appears in a list of Welsh masculine given
names taken from those portions of the Book of Llandav that relate to
the 6th through 10th centuries. I see no reason it shouldn't be
considered a perfectly reasonable choice for an early-period Welsh
persona, or that it couldn't be registered if combined with an
appropriate Old Welsh byname.
