re: A newbies plea: help regarding names.
- <<< Can I register a nom de guerre (war name) as my official SCA name?
Specifically, I would like the name "Carnifex Rex", latin for
king", which I understand has it's noble implications, but as a nom de
think it is fantastic. It can be applied TO the viking persona by his
latin being fitting as abbeys and churches were frequent targets for
raids, and wrote in latin. And it can also be applied BY the Templar
a way of instilling fear in his enemies, again with latin being a huge
every day life for the Templar. >>>
I'm not a name herald, but I don't think you can. I think it crosses
the line into claiming a rank you don't have.
Can you find evidence of anyone in those two cultures using a name
similar to that in Latin or not?
Your local herald would be the place to start, even if you aren't
getting any response from your local group in general. After you've
tried that route and if you get no attention, then I'd try your
regional heraldic officer. You've started with the right on-line
