Not sure how many of you have been keeping up with this but it is something 
to consider. If you are interested, you may subscribe to the Northern 
Regional mailing list.

Subject: [NR] NORTHERN REGIONALNAMING a list for heralds and timeline


Here is the list that Tadhg suggested from his mathy-ness capabilities, that
I do not have, and the meanings and languages if there was information
given.  I would ask that any name-savvy heralds look it over and see if
there would be any conflicts or mis-whatevers with them so we could cull
this list down just a bit more before we do a formal polling on names.  We
would like a name that we can register as only a Kingdom can register a
region name so no one else takes it.

This is the 8th of June.

If we can get any research done by the 27th of June 2011 the list can get
re-compiled and an ad can be put into the August blackstar for a polling
(who's deadline is July 1st).

This also gives time for new submissions to happen this month if anyone
would like to do more research for names to add to the list.

I WILL BE CALLING FOR AN OFFICIAL POLLING TO BE DONE IN THE NORTHERN REGION
AT THE POPULACE OF EACH BARONY, PROVINCE, SHIRE, AND CANTON DURING THE MONTH
OF AUGUST 2011 AT THEIR LOCAL MEETING.

If anyone thinks that this timeline is bad, please let me know, I am always
willing to change with new evidence.

the list of names follows


> Hrithmarc
Means Tempest Land in Old English
> Hastmark
means horse lands in Swedish
> Cyrmoden
Cyrm, pronounced Kirm, meaning "A clamor, noise" and Oden, meaning "a court
or chamber, floor space, an indoor area." The Court of Noise -
> Ebenen      german
means plains, which describes most of Oklahoma and the Texas panhandle
> Midgrens
Dutch for Heartland
> Quivara
Historical (possibly from the Arabic for "Great") name for the region
including Eastern New Mexico through the Texas Panhandle, Oklahoma and
Kansas.
> Styringeard
Styring, from "styr (pronounced stir) ", meaning "to move", like stirring a
soup or a stirring song that rouses troops. It also is the root of "storm",
as clouds and weather were moving or stirring. the word "styraman" means "to
storm".Geard is also Gard, meaning a garden or yard, an enclosure of ground.
Styringeard (pronounced "Stirring Gard") would mean the Stirring Garden.
> Norchester    middle english
Northern Fortification
> Biornrice     old english
Translated from "warrior, hero" and "realm, people" to "realm of heroes" or
"people of heroes". Pronunciation is roughly "beeorn-rys".
> Northunor or Norðþunor old english
Translates to "thunder from the north". Pronunciation is roughly
"nordh-thunor".
> Reodweald   don’t know the language means Red Land
> Morland  or Mðrland old english
Translates to "wild hilly country".
> Axia
It's the word "axis" modified with the -ia place name suffix to signify that
our region is Ansteorra's "north star" ( aligned to the polar axis, so to
speak).
> Glomeval
Conjecturally period, this is a variation on a Norse Runestone found in the
Northern Region, outside Heavener, and shows that a Norseman named "Glome"
laid claim to the valley, ie: "Glome's Vale", in period, and, in fact,
previous to the Spanish expeditions. A possible alternate translation calls
the same area "Gnomeval", or "Valley of the Gnomes". The runestone is part
of a chain that ran north and south, along the present day Oklahoma/
Arkansas border, or, the current border of Ansteorra and Glen Abhean, and
would have referred to not just the immediate valley, but "all points west,
as far as Glome could hold".
> Moralor  or Mðralor   old english
Translates to "wild hilly country". Taken from "mðrland" (wild hilly
country) and "alor" (country) with "alor" taking the place of "land". It
should work so long as the scribes don't inadvertently get the "a" too close
to the "l" and turn it into a "d".
