Thank you for all the names. I had originally thought of naming the boy Brion, however, I really like all your suggestions of Kenneth. So how about Kenneth Brion Anthony Haldane. I was thinking Javan's first son could be Rhys-Alaric Kelson Haldane. I do not know if the first son will make it into the story, but I will put his name out there just in case.

As for the lapse of Wash not including Darcy, I want to believe it was entirely unintentional. Wash knows his rank alone puts him in a leadership roll. Rather, his Father's reputation does this, even more so than his personal rank. However, that only goes so far. Everyone will compare him: Is he his father's son or is he just a rich boy living on other's deeds.  Since he would never be a man who rules with cruelty and fear, Wash knows he has to earn other's respect and their loyalty in order to be an effective leader. He definitely respects each person in our group; he appreciates the intellect and skills that each of them adds to the group's success. It is not them or their skills that he is currently concerned about. Rather instead, he personally feels that he has failed those who are relying on him. The job of a knight and a nobleman is to protect. Up to this moment, he has failed in his roll as protector. Lord Trillek becomes an added level of protection to resolving the current crisis.

Let me see if I can work with Wash to get him to acknowledged his companions without losing their respect.

I'm sure you and Sir Washburn will work something out.  And remember, Darcy is a practical young man more inclined to think things through than follow his emotions. He's learned this skill the hard way at sea, working his way up from the bottommost rung you can start at.   But he also now knows he is the second son of a baron.  This fact he will keep tucked away until they safely return to Rhemuth.  It is an complication he doesn't need right now.  He's not quite sure how to deal with it.

It is the sudden change in dynamics that is the problem. Also, although Columcil does not question hierarchies, he is a borderer and unconciously he has begun to think of the little group as operating as members of a clan with Washburn as the chief, with the all  power of command that implies but also a freer social interchange than would be found elsewhere.

He is also busy doing calculations and wondering why young Lord Trillick took so long to show up. Oh dear; our good priest is learning to have a suspicious mind.

I don't think  that either Wash or Aliset meant to exclude Darcy and I'M sure they will be more concious of his feelings, However they'really not out of the woods yet and have to be focused on reaching Rhemuth safely . I like  Kenneth Anthony for a name for a son of Javan and Grania.

I hope I haven't offended Washburn and Aliset but Columcil has been seething since Jerusha posted. He still quite fancies tipping Lord Jaxom off his horse.

As you wrote in your most recent post, the dismissive way Washburn and Aliset have treated Darcy was not at all intentional (much less malicious).  It seems like they all have bigger fish to fry and the good knight and lady got distracted from their generally better behavior standards.  ;)

I think Aliset would not be offended, just deeply remorseful once she realized there was a problem. As one born and bred to the nobility (albeit the lowest rung of nobility), she was raised with the expectation of being able to think for herself and give orders.  But then again, being of the lowest rung of nobility, she is equally used to deferring to the higher-ups.  So when another nobleman of her own station (or roughly so) comes along, she'd instinctively respond to her societal class equal as she's long been accustomed to, although probably deferring to Trillick since he is male (and ladies are expected to defer to lords) and to Wash as being a duke's son and higher in rank than herself, so therefore the unquestioned leader. It's the system to which she has been acclimated since birth.  But yes, before Trillick came along, there was a more equalitarian dynamic growing in the party that was more inclusive of Darcy and Columcil, which would have developed completely without conscious thought of it because they all have different strengths and weaknesses to bring to the table, and much rely on each other to survive.  Once Aliset comes to realize that excluding Darcy once Trillick shows up comes across as dismissive (even though that wasn't their intent at all), I think she would make more of an effort to include him in decision making, having come to respect and trust him.  But a lifetime of being raised as part of the ruling class creates habits that are more instinctive than conscious.  (Medieval privilege before the modern concept of privilege was a thing anyone would have even given a passing thought, because social roles were so ingrained no one would have considered society could be any other way.)

Before I start writing. can I have approval for a royal marriage between Grania Morgan and Javan Haldane.  If both had been born in 1130 than they both would have been married around 1148-9 it would have been a marriage of friendship and love. having grown up with the families so close. If Grania has a 5 year old son in 1164, (this would be Washburn's nephew who borrowed his ward cubes) he would not be the eldest son, and not the heir. I am looking for a Good Haldane/Morgan name for this child. Any thoughts?

I like Brion Kenneth (with maybe one more given name, perhaps Anthony), but I also like that because I have a cousin whose given names are Brian Kenneth.  :D
