A small update, but a meaningful one to me. After 23 years of “almost”, the name Drake Oranwood is finally registered to me.
For those of you who don’t play in the SCA, we take names seriously. Until recently, I couldn’t register Drake as my first name, because the heralds couldn’t find records during our period (pre-1650) showing it used as a first name, so I had to register it as my middle name. A short while back, that changed, thanks to access to new records. (Thank you to Mistress Alys Mackyntoich for finding it, telling us about it, and submitting the changes for me and for my wife, who is now officially Jessa de Hunteleghe!)
(And if anyone was wondering about the post title, it’s my favorite line from The Crucible.)
