[Ansteorra] Nordsteorra

As I see it, there are no other regions that have a border on the northern edge of Ansteorra, so there's not really a necessity to differentiate further.  Southern and Coastal both share the southern border, but Coastal does not share the coast with any other region, so while it extends further south than Southern, I think both are adequately named.

And it might help others to know that while some people may refer to the Northern Region as "Nordsteorra", it is not an official regional name.  Nordsteorra Herald is the heraldic title (registered) of the Northern Regional Herald.  Which is why this whole thread catches my eye every time I see a post because my initial reaction is, "What's happening with my regional deputy?" :)  The other regional heralds are Orbis (Southern), Eclipse (Central), and Solstice (Coastal).

I'm still waiting for someone to very generously suggest renaming the
Northern region, perhaps to something kindly inclusive of the addition
of new territories to the west... 

You know...

Something that might help them regain a sense of their own identity. 

Something to help them know that they aren't just being assimilated,
but that they are loved and wanted and can maintain some semblance of
who they feel they are. 

Odd that nobody else has suggested it. Maybe everyone has already
thought of it and doesn't like the idea. <shrug> I'm a little out of
the loop, so forgive me for mentioning it if there is something I don't

I just think the Northwestern Region sounds pretty good...and still
administratively sound.
