An Tir just had to send back "James the Obscure" at kingdom because no
matter how hard we tried, we couldn't find obscure as a period description
of people. (It's on appeal right now.) So it's a matter of not only dating
the word, but proving it was used/usable as a personal epithet.

I tried sleep-teaching myself heraldry. Didn't help me, but now my
cats sort their food so the red bits are on the white floor and the
yellow bits stay in the blue bowl.
