While calling yourself Lord de Byram would make you all wet, should I ever be
a capital "L" SCA Lady and used Lady Traquair, it might be disrespectful
toward the existing real life Lady of Traquair.  So, for those who didn't make
up the "place" in their name, there's that to consider. When I chose Traquair,
I didn't realize the place and family still existed.
