- Nov 5, 2007So I had an entire day of nothing to do while trapped at the house
waiting for the gas company to hook up my gas so I can have heat...
(joy.) So I started researching a name. After looking at the very
little early information for women and just trying my darndest...
this is what I came up with... I have decided I was born in Kiev
around 940. I found a masculine form of a name I really liked and
added an "a" for the feminine form. I found alot examples of that
that went back to the 2d-3d centuries. I tried to pick a traditional
name and make a simple patronymic (dad was born w/ dark hair and
named Mavr.) Is this possibly passable? :
Emelian (m) -- "flattering."
Emelian. Lived in the 9th century. [Buk 18]
Mavr (m) -- "dark."
Mavr, martyr. 3rd Century. [Buk 158]
o Dims: Mavreshko. 1253. [Mor 117]
o Pat Vars: Maurin (Iev Maurin). 1611-2. [RIB II 264]
Mavra (f) -- "dark." Fem of Mavr.
Mavra, martyr. 13-14th Centuries. [Lev 41]
o Dims: Mavritsa (Mavritsa Vasil'eva doch'). 1634-42. [RIB II
