CALONTIR returns

* Deirdre MacAodha. Name.

This name cannot be registered because it does not follow an attested naming pattern. MacAodha is a Gaelic byname meaning "son of Aodha." Such names are literal -- a woman cannot use a Gaelic Mac- byname because she is not someone's son. The submitter cannot use the female Gaelic name Deirdre with the male Gaelic byname MacAodha. As the submitter is not a legal relative of anyone with the registered byname MacAodha, she also cannot rely on the Existing Registration Allowance.

The only change that the submitter permitted to her name was a change to Deirdre Nellie if it could be documented. Nellie is an English surname dated to 1548 in the FamilySearch Historical Records. Unfortunately, Deirdre is a standardized 12th century Gaelic name, [Deirdre inghean ui Mhathghamhna, 4/2014 LoAR, A-Caid], that could not be dated later in time. Because there are more than 300 years between these two elements, we are unable to register the only change permitted by the submitter, and the name must be returned.

The submitter's device is registered under the holding name Heather of Calontir.
