Suggestions toward establishing a guideline for naming Irish Profiles
pre 1500 what should we enter in LNAB field where only one name is known to be used? Is it appropriate to enter a clan, or kingdom, or place name instead?
pre 1700 Irish (Gaelic) names should be written in MODERN Irish - with alternate names in English in name field if desired and in Old Irish in the Bio section where known
pre-1700 Norse/Viking names according to Project Norway FAQ
pre 1700 Anglo/Irish (Hiberno/Norman) names should be in French or English according to the style adopted by the family with alternate names in Irish if known to be used
pre 1700 English names should follow the guidelines established in the British Isles section of the Euroaristo Project
Titles and distinctions should be in the appropriate language and style of the descent lines; ie
Gaelic "Chiefs of the Name" whose style varies, Irish equivalents for "Prince" (sometimes a Tánaiste) "King" (Rí + name of kingdom) and "High King" (Ard-Rí) should used with an explanation in English
Peerage of Ireland, as per guidelines established in the Euroaristo Project - except in the case of surrender and regrant, in which both the Irish title and that granted in the English Peerage should be noted
Will this Guideline work? What do others think?
