Majesty, would it be acceptable for the residents of Asantelian Parvatvana to chose a different name for their Duchy and would such a change fall under my jurisdiction or a higher government body? Also, would not Section 4 be better suited for the High Council?

Edit: Just noticed that this is the third time I've been a Duke in Goldshire in less than three years.

If you come up with a name that is historically appropriate sure!

In what way is Asantelian Parvatvana "historically appropriate" and why is that a requirement? Its just two names that parts of the duchy used to be called years ago. I'd go with something which combines the idea of the sun and moon being in the same domain. The Eclipsian Duchy has a nice ring to it. Then there's the old mash-'em-together approach where we get the Duchy of Sutherlune or Lunagold. I actually like that now that I see it in text. I hereby declare Asantelian Parvatvana renamed as the Eclipsian Duchy of Sutherlune effective immediately.

Dear Sister,

Both Miranda and I are deeply touched by your consideration. We both look forward to the day when we can embrace you once more and the Simrani-Kalirions can be together again and call Benacia our own.

Asantelian and Parvatvana were the names of two glorious counties with a proud history and cultural development. It was by Parvatvana that the entirety of Brookshire was subjugated to the glory of Goldshire. To Asantelian, kaisers fled when Shirekeep was sacked. It was the home of the Reynardines, the line of kaisers that ensured the survival of Goldshire (and Shireroth) upon Elwynnese independence. Honouring these would be historically appropriate.

I gave you the offer to change the name if you found something that was historical appropriate. Instead, you question me. The reason why I want something historical appropriate is very clear. Goldshire is an ancient land, its boundaries and names should not change at whim. People should be able, without knowing much of current politics, to understand where a certain county or duchy is. I will not agree to names based on trend. As such, there will be no Noorland in this kingdom, nor an Ayreonia.

Sutherlune is a good try. Though combining Latin roots with roots from other language groups (like Greek and Germanic) is an atrocity to purity that should carry the death penalty. I would in that case implore you to accept "Suthermoon" as a compromise offer between the kingdom and the duchy.

If anything, such a combination as Sutherlune celebrates the cultures of both Suthergold and Lunaris. Along with English, Bastardized Latin as the language most well known across Lunaris, therefore, "Sutherlune" would be perfectly acceptable to the County population as it sounds pretty and has a bit of Latin thrown in. As for Suthergold, over there we're just happy to mush everything together as long as it's pleasant to enough of us. It's not that I don't like "Suthermoon", it just isn't my top pick.

I stand by it as the official name of my Duchy.
