Greek would be "name + nickname" and a family name

How Celts in our period structured names is a little different than modern usages




Here is Gaullic
http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/tangwystyl/gaulish/


and Breton (while it's early Medieval is
close enough for us)
http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/EarlyMedievalBreton.html

Please note the Celts did not write in their language so all of this is done threw Greek and Latin.


There are three ways


name + nickname


name + parent's name (typically, the parent as the same gender at the character, prominent ancestors are also used)



iníon = daughter
falia is Latin for daughter for any Romanized Celts, though 'il is used for short hand


name + of family name


How
you character names themselves shows what that consider more important.
Self made people and the poor are going to stress nicknames.
Characters from higher social status will stress their families and
parents.



Beyond that "Capelban" (white horse) is the clan name. Most of the Celts are Capelbans or related to the Capelbans in some
fashion.


How you mark it can subtly show your relationship with the Capelbans


"O'Capelban" means "from Capelban" a clan member by association

"de'Capelban" means "of the Capelbans" family member by blood

Bejonias uses "'il Capelban" means "daughter of Capelban" to note she is one of inner core of the clan. "an'Capelban" means "The Capelban", head of the clan and only Elketra should use that.

Programging notes.

The names of the Celts have been modernized for audience convince.

Bejonias = Beinnisa (shortened from Beaninnis, island woman)
Uasala = Patrice (noble
woman)
Soilsia= Elektra (lighting)
solasa = Lucinda (light)
Mé = Mee
Bua = Vyctoria (victory)
