Okay. This is a real sign that I was waaaaay too tired to be digging through
Morlet last night. I honestly missed these. Sigh. I thought I'd looked under
all the logical headings. I guess my eyes glazed over in all the spellings of
Thanks for catching these, Maridonna!
Is the <Rixendis> spelling marked with an asterisk in the text or did you put
in the asterisk to draw attention to this spelling?
<Rixendis> is probably Latin. But it does give some support to <Rixend-> being
a period form. I don't know what a vernacular form would be. Whether it would
be <Rixende> or not. It could well be. Now we're getting into period French
dialectical stuff and that's not my forte/.
It looks like there's enough support for <Rixende> to be submitted - maybe
registered (depends on what commenters who know tons about dialectical stuff
say along the way).
It's been ages since I've written the text for a submission. But I can picture
good text for the ILoI / LoI entry. I've typed that in below in case you want
to use it as a summary page or something for this submission.
Hope this helps,
The format I usually use is:
[submitted form] - [what is this word/name element] [where did we find this
name] [why we think it's registerable, including documentation for period
examples, etc. - sometimes this section is unnecessary if the documentation
shows a solid period example of this name element used as the submitter wants
to use it]

Rixende - feminine given name found in "Names from Fourteenth Century Foix" by
Cateline de la Mor (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/foix.html). Also
found in "Names from Thirteenth Century Languedoc" by Cateline de la Mor
(http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/languedoc.html). Some of the names in
these articles are modernized and we cannot tell if the spelling "Rixende" is
modernized or not. Morlet I (p. 189 s.n. Ricsindis) dates the
spellings "Ricsinda" to a. 938 and "Rixendis" to a. 1064-79, lending some
support to the spelling "Rixende" as a period vernacular form.

[If you go with this text, you'll need to print out the relevant pages from
Cateline's two articles and include those pages with the submission.]
[If the submitter happens to have a preferred "fallback" spelling she wants
if "Rixende" isn't registerable, then this is a good place to note that.]
