List of Midretassene Personal Names

From WorldofAsdar
Jump to: navigation, search

Midretassene custom and tradition provided for three to four names for an individual. Every freeborn person, whether patrician (aristocrat) or commoner (plebeian), received three names: Given Name, Tribal Name, and Gentilician (clan) Name. Each tribe was divided into several clans, so it was necessary to know which clan a person was born into.

For aristocratic families and some wealthy plebeian families with more than one branch or household, there was also a 'household' name that usually revealed what house or house location the particular family lived in.
