Greetings Unto the Lists!
I have a question on what would (hopefully) be considered acceptable documentation showing that a Turkish name was used during the SCA period. I am interested in using the name "Nurbanu." I have found that there was a Valide Sultan by that name; the mother of Sultan Murad III, who reigned from 1574-1595. Since there aren't a lot of records of women's names, would that be considered acceptable documentation; or do I need to try to find more examples? Obviously, I would want to construct the rest of my name so that it would not imply a similarity with the Valide Sultan.
If anyone can give me any information on this, I would appreciate it greatly.
Susan (hoping to be Nurbanu)
