The byname the Gipsie is grandfathered to the submitter, but "[t]he use of the grandfather clause does not allow the submitter to evade new style problems (as discussed in PN.2 below). It only allows the submitter to keep style problems that already exist with the registered name." As the combination of Judeo-Arabic and English does not exist in her previous name, this adds a new problem. However, this given name is compatible with a lingua Anglica byname based on a documented Italian byname with that meaning. For a lingua Anglica byname, we must use the standard modern gypsy or gipsy; we have changed the name to the latter in order to register this name. [Shaia the Gipsy, November 2013, A-Caid]However, SENA PN2C2d states:
A name which includes name phrases documented under the legal name allowance, the grandfather clause, or the branch name allowance follows special rules. These name phrases are treated as neutral in language and time. Such name phrases may be combined with name phrases from a single regional naming group dated to within 500 years of one another. They may not be combined with name phrases from two or more regional naming groups. If a name phrase can also be documented as either an attested or constructed name, it may be treated in whichever way is more favorable for registration.SENA was intended to bring parity to how documentable elements are treated vs. now-unregisterable elements. For example, an attested English name from period could be treated more harshly than an invented Elvish name. It also allows family members to use an element from a close relative's name. It is for this reason that grandfathered names are treated as neutral in language and time as long as they are combined with name phrases dated within 500 years from a single regional naming group. Therefore, the November 2013 decision was incorrect and the grandfathering of the submitted byname should have been allowed under PN2C2d of SENA. In the present submission, the item being grandfathered is being combined with a single byname dated within 100 years, so this name is registerable.
