[Note: in this message, I'm using / to indicate an accent on the previous
The change from <Tiarna/n> to <Tiernan> is a language change from Gaelic to
Anglicized Irish, and is a major change (which the submitter does not allow).
In general, the change from a modern Gaelic form to a period Gaelic form has
been considered a minor change, but I don't know if there has been any recent
precedent on this.
so, to keep it as a minor change, the Modern Gaelic (c1700-present)
<Tiarna/n> would need to become the Early Modern Gaelic (c1200-c1700)
<Tighearna/n>. The Old Irish (c700-c900) and Middle Irish (c900-c1200) form
of this name was <Tigerna/n>.
