Greetings August Assembly!



I wish to register the name, Troye de Lyon. The last part is locative to the
city of Lyons, Burgundy during the period 1150+ AD.


As hard as I have tried, I am unable to find any references to the name
"Troye" during the period. The only thing that pops up is the city of
Troyes, France.


Would it be allowed under the rules to choose a shorted locative name for
the first name? 


I have a back up, Francois which shows up in a 1292 census of Paris. How
much documentation is required to justify a first name?


In service,


Troye de Leon  

Western Cross Herald,

Barony of Bonwicke.
