Unfortunately, I will not be there this weekend.
However the last time this discussion took place (as I recall on the
I posted the following suggestions:
"But let's just look at some naming possibilities (these
are simply examples, and should not
be construed as an attempt to force anything on anyone).
What are we looking at naming?
A region based on Oklahoma and Oklahomans (although why,
if the regional border is the
Red River, Bonwicke's in the Western Region, but what
the heck -- it makes the North =
Oklahoma thing that much stronger).
Just as an aside, there were Europeans in Oklahoma
during the SCA's Period. The Coronado
expedition came through in 1541; Juan de Oñate in 1601;
and Baca in 1634. There may have
been others also, but these were the major expeditions
searching for Quivara. I'd be interested
in what *they* called the region. [To which Emma replied
""Llano Estacado"...the Staked Plains."
In any case, some thoughts --
Cimarron, Wichita, Sequoya, and such are appropriate
*Oklahoma* names, but really not
Middle Ages appropriate.
"North Star" (the essence of Nordsteorra):
Njorðrstjarna (Icelandic), Astra Septemptriona (Latin),
Gogleddseren (Welsh), Realt na tuaidh (Irish), and so
"Sky Shield" (which is no dopier than "One star" for
describing a state flag): Scutumcaelum (Latin)
Wybrenysgwyd (Welsh), Sgiath na Speire (Irish)
"Two Lands" Bitellus (Latin - Bitallia?), Daugwlad
(Welsh), Dhadautaigh (Irish)"
