Reply to: Help me document Yasmeena by Willa Rose
Just remember that it is wildly unlikely for pre-17th century Western parents to give their daughter a non-Christian (OK, non-biblical, non-saint's) name. Where you hear a pretty name and think of a fragrant flower, they would have heard the forces of heathen darkness! As for finding a priest who'd be willing to christen a child with a name like that - try finding a church minister in a Bible Belt community today who'd willingly name a child, say, Osama ...

Unless, of course, your pre-17th century community is in fact an Islamic one - is it?
