Advantages: It's passed.  Transfer from the herald's office will take only a
few penstrokes.
Advantages: It's known.  People in this kingdom and others can identify us
by this name.
Advantages: It fits.  It describes our geography, allegiance, and history

Advantages: It's all Old English.  At the time it was passed, it got put
down as a 'd' instead of a 'ð' (thorn).  But even then the Old English had
some variable pronunciation for this letter.  Certainly in today's time one
has only to travel to WisCANson to hear someone say they're from "da nord,
eh?".  And it has been passed by the College of Arms.

The Red Man banner was a start many years ago.  But it's design (a red man
over a red river) might be offensive to one of the groups currently in the
Northern Region - Brad Leah.  They're one the wrong side of the river to
rally behind this banner.
