- Aug 16, 2005There is a difference between saying "locative names are rare but
period in Ireland" and saying "Temair Four Cat Creek is period." The
next step is to figure out what Irish locative names look like and see
if Four Cat Creek fits that pattern or can be made to fit that pattern
-- we're talking about entering heavy linguistics territory here.
(Certainly, beyond me -- I could help a person with an English
locative, but I am no expert in Irish Gaelic.)
Of course, as you mentioned before, you can call yourself whatever you
want. If you chose to register a device, you will have to register it
under a name that meets the CoA's minimum standards for authenticity.
Frankly, with what you have now (and the documentation you have
mentioned on the list), I doubt your name is registerable. Your
choice, of course. I always recommend that my clients go as period as
they can stand with their name -- I believe they will be happier with
it in the long run, and I like people to be happy.

If you can't get rid of them ugly old skeletons in the closet, at
