Description
Names are important. They are often the first thing other people have on which to form an opinion of us. Princess Daisy of the Purple Unicorns might not give the best impression. We can invest a lot of time and emotion in coming up with a name. However, if it doesn't follow reasonable historical practice or general SCA standards, it won't be registered. In this class we'll discuss what the SCA requires in a name and what was generally historically done.
