Peerage Pronunciations

This is a list of the members of the Orders of the Laurel and Defense created in the Kingdom of Northshield, a division of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).

As most of the investiture ceremonies include a reading of the Order’s lineage and many of us have tricky names, this is specifically a list of the pronunciations of each member’s name. See the links above for biographical and contact information for each person.

Please note, these are presented in a phonetic spelling that most people will be able to follow, not the official phonetic representations with all the funny characters, since that is as opaque to many people as the foreign names are! Items in italics have not been verified. Please send updates, changes, and corrections to Eithni.
