Yep, here is a suggestion from someone who isn't a herald or speaks any
forign languages and is the same thing I mentioned to ones in the Tahlequah
Group when they were bouncing around a French name.  Think about if you
constantly want to have your name mispronounced, misspelled and when people
explain what it means-giving the wrong explaination-ie-what Marc pointed
out.  I know that I would, it would be completly innocent, but would happen.

This is one of the reasons I really enjoy Northkeep as a name, thank you to
whoever did the work on it-it is appreciated.  It says who we are, what we
do and tells a bit about our personality and is simple to spell.  In the
north, Namron and Wastelands are the only others that offer the same
simplicity; I love the many other groups, but regularly bastardize their
names and appoligize.  This is an issue I have dealt with my whole life, I
grew up in Tahlequah and think I was 10 or so before I could consistantly
spell it right and had to always spell it out to anyone who needed to write
it for anything.

We listen and hope you have a good day and weekend, even if you are having
to work today,
