Not like the given name you want, Morlet, Marie-Therese. _Les Noms 
de Personne sur le Territoire de L'Ancienne Gaule du VI au XII Si._ 
has <Troianus> a saint a. 533, page 112, vol.2.  There would be One 
Step From Period Practice (weirdness) for Temporal Disparity.

The source you have for Francois is fine.  Since it from the SCA 
Heraldry website and starts www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/  you 
don't have to make photocopies. Just be sure put the name of the 
article, author and url, and your choice of name on your submission 

I'd say something like - Francois.  Maculine given name found in _An 
Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census of Paris_ by Lord Colm 
Dubh, URL: http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/paris.html
