Yes, but we use some Scots symbology and usages, most notably the
Thistle, despite our Kingdom's name being in Welsh. I fail to see why
aelecting a Spanish name for our Region (should it become a
principality) would prevent the use of the Scots/English term of Warden
for our champions.
For that matter, the term 'warlord' has negative connotations in
modern context. Should we be so 'politically correct' as to not use any
medieval title that we fear might annoy a few folks, wouldn't this one
also have to go?
I would think it would be best to consider our titles in their
medieval contexts, rather than yield to kind of small-minded
scapegoating of words that obtains in the mundane press.

Charles I think that the point isthat not alot of people like the ieda of the
title Warden. I know I would rather be called a champion,warlord,defender or
even CAVALIER ( being a rapier fighter) .
I also think that we should not have the same title for the heavy ,light,
bardic A&S,archery ect winners.
