Name – Inamyo form (unavailable), Yanshi form – Gender (male/female/unisex) – Reading (tyekota/molota)Besides given names following the surname there isn't much you need to know about Layamese naming customs, but there are a few things to keep in mind; one is that not every member of a given noble clan uses the surname associated with it and not everyone with that surname is necessarily of that clan.
Also, in the name list you'll see a few names described as "court readings". As you might expect, the Layamese imperial court liked gendered aesthetics and this extended to language even beyond the extensive system of gendered honorifics; back vowels (u, o) and voiced stops (b, d, g) came to have a masculine association and front vowels (i, e) and unvoiced stops (p, t, k) came to have a feminine association. This lead to some name variants being consciously created with the sounds being shifted (vowels being fronted or backed, consonants being voiced or unvoiced) to the "proper" sound. For instance, the typical name 花 Gumi ("flower") could also be read Kimim. These forms may or may not be used by nobility or wealthy artisans or merchants but would be basically unknown to most of the population.
Finally, notes on neologistic names; the name list is written from a modern day perspective and so includes names and spellings that would possibly or definitely not be present in 1554. There is an entire category of surnames for instance that would not be, those suffixed with -sya or variants on them, which were created as surnames became mandatory and the land tax was reformed based on area at around the same time in the 19th century. For given names there are a few like Boa, Miata, and Saya (well, those are the only ones that come to mind, actually) which would rare, nonexistent, or exclusively regional at this time, and some Chinese character spellings, particularly some of the more phonologically eccentric ones like with sawa spelled 躑躅 "azalea", might be neologistic too, though with a few exceptions I didn't define which names or spellings are neologistic. I did mark some names as archaic which would definitely be in use in this period.
You're free to use whatever name you want, but you can keep this in mind if you want be more rigorous with the setting (possibly more rigorous than I'm being given I'm not really getting in to how the language would be different in 1554 than today. The only thing I'll specifically discourage is using transliterations with doubled vowel letters for long vowels, because it just looks goofy and you should use diacritics or single letters instead. Also, keep in mind there are likely many mistakes in the lists given the amount of entries.
The title means "roast/cooked vegetables".A style of poetry that has grown to prominence, supplanting longer forms and Chinese-language poetry in popularity, is shoke (short for shoté-ketshok "theme-conclusion"). The canonical or minimal shoke form is 30 morae in four lines arranged eight-eight-eight-six, with the first two lines being shoté, introducing a theme or subject or setting a scene, and the final two being ketshok, a conclusion imparting meaning or emotion on the theme. However the mora count can vary, with the most basic metrical rule being that shoke should have three short lines preferably of equal length and a shorter final line. Themes rooted in the seasons and the natural world are preferred.
...I am really bad at getting to things.Meant to do this before the year ended but never got around to it until now that it's 2022; doing a few posts with writing and other content from the past year (and maybe some from earlier, I'll look through my folders and decide if there's anything worth posting since I haven't had much new lately) that wasn't posted anywhere or was only posted off-board.
