Compiled Name Precedents:[edit]

[[3]] || Elsbeth Anne Roth || 2000.09 || Submitted on the LoI as To__m __MacGrimm//, the name was changed to that form in Kingdom; it was originally submitted as //Tam MacGrimm//. However, Reaney and Wilson's //Dictionary of English Surnames// has "//Peter Tamelyn// 1327 SRsf. A double diminutive of //Tam// (//Tom//). cf. //Tomlin//." and "//William Tamson// 1395 EA (OS) iv (C); //Walter Tampson// 1641 PrSo; //John Tampson// 1642 PrD. 'Son of //Tam//', a variant of //Tom//, a pet-form of //Thomas//." Therefore //Tam// appears to be an acceptable given name. However, there is no documentation for adding //mac// to the documentable //Grimm//. We have therefore changed the given name back to the original form and removed //mac// from the byname. [Tam Grimm, 09/00, A-Outlands] ||
