Question on Kelson's name
« on: January 20, 2017, 08:23:04 am »
Jess McKinnon asks: Where did you come up with the name Kelson? I chose it for my SCA persona and havenít had much luck finding it in period as a first name. Iíve found it as a last name meaning ďof or from KelseyĒ. Could you give me a direction in which to look or should I just give up and pick a new name?


Katherine Says: As I recallóremember, itís been more than thirty years ago!óKelson comes from Keel-son, referring to the keel of a boat, and I think it may have been Viking in origin. That said, I very much doubt that youíll be able to get any SCA herald to approve the name, simply because itís so uniquely identifiable in fantasy literature. But it was a historical first name.
