on the types of names that you can *use* in the SCA (though, of course,
adopting offensive names or names of well-known historical figures is
frowned upon!). If you want to register your name with the College of
Arms, then you'll need to show that the elements were used as name
elements in some pre-1600 language/culture. For that, you would probably
need to do some research (if that's what you want to do, we can recommend
some good places to look, too).

Not a dumb question at all (it's hard for the heralds to remember
sometimes that they technical terms they use are not familiar to
everyone!). Yes, registered means that it passed.

You should receive a letter confirming the registration from one of
the heralds in your kingdom; some kingdoms have a bit of a back long
on notifying people, though, so I can't tell you how long it will be
before you get your letter. I will say that the results from the
February 2008 meeting, which is when your name and device were
registered, weren't published until July, so the delay isn't quite
so long as it might seem!

It does indeed! You are now Beatrice Lilli and no one else can
register a name which is too similar to that.
