Getting a tad off topic. ;)

I think Patty addressed the continuity issue in the Ask Patty section a while back. I'll post her answer here when I find it.

Welsh naming convention for the Middle Ages would have Samuel be call Samuel ap Bran.  There's probably a Welsh version of Samuel, but my onomastics books are in hiding from my children

And wouldn't that more or less translate to Samual son of Bran? Or maybe not. I don't know any Welsh but it sounds to me like that is what it would mean.

when i read that part i just thought it was Uncle Mike stressing the fact that Sam is related to the Marrock.  i think Cornick is his current last name but he is also the Marrock's son and therefore can be called Sam Marrockson to stress the connection and his political power

Just a fae version of your mother saying "Roxanne Abigail Squirrel, how dare you?!"  or words to that effect, it's a more formal version to catch the attention.

I just had an evil (ebil woman, Patti) thought about Bran as King Arthur's Marrock.
Wouldn't the scholars be wild to find out what he knows about the reality of Arthur?
Bwah hah hah hah haaa

Now that would be intersting... and about the age I've wondered for Bran.

I can just see it, Bran surrounded by scholars asking so many questions.

Not just asking (and we're straying off topic here) but arguing for their pet theories in the face of his knowledge.

I wonder if Samuel would by any chance have been at the Round Table too? . . . . ?
