Stefan :-)

Hee! I'm a little dancey too, but let's not dance in haste. I haven't  
heard anyone comment on it at all, so it may or may not be considered  
acceptable and registerable. I haven't formally submitted the name,  
and won't until I can tell whether it has a good chance of being  

Oh, I understand. I've particularly cautioned folks to not start  
painting their arms on everything until they know that they've passed.

Do you have a last name yet, as well? I'm not really a name herald, so  
I don't remember all the requirements, but I thought both a first and  
last name were required.

I do recommend doing some preliminary work yourself or with your local  
heralds before you formally submit a name.  For several years I helped  
handle the paperwork as a clerk for the head herald honchos when they  
were here in Ansteorra. It got to be a problem when folks would get a  
name or device approved and then submit a different one a few months  
later. Or worse, to have someone submit a new name while their first  
name was still in the approval process.

But I'm happy to see you making some decisions on your name and persona.

For those interested, there are some articles on names and personas in  
the NEWCOMERS and the PERSONAS sections of the Florilegium.
