The principality would not be being named for the herald; the herald was
named for the region of the kingdom, northern Ansteorra.  This would
just be giving the name back.  The practice of naming a herald for a
region is quite period.  Please ask the mundane Norroy Herald or Ulster
Herald if you have any questions.

As far as it being a title in use... It is a registered name, and as
such can be transferred.

Annais, it sounds like you are talking about a non-principality issue.
As such, it doesn't have bearing on this particular thread.  I cannot
think of anything in several years where someone up here has tried to
change the status of a branch or group of branches "behind the backs" of
the majority of the populace.  If there is, expound upon it.  Otherwise,
start up a separate thread to discuss this subversion.

The herald in me screams: "NO MASONRY!!!"  Branch arms should exemplify
period standards, not period exceptions. Sorry, I know you like it. But
our branches have to operate at the highest of standards.  By Daniel de
Lincoln's set of definitions, a branch should be the "terrarium" model
rather than the "museum" model.
