I had way too much time on my hands when I was sixteen.

If we were still going by archaic naming traditions of the Dasaroi, Julia would be introduced to you as Julia, tsiliara kiyrith na'Katrina na'li'Tamra, Kithraya na'li'Tamra, Lishaya na'li'Dasaroi; kiri'totharan na'Kieran na'li'Narsan, Kithrayn na'li'Narsan.

Which would denote, in order, that she is Julia, fourthborn daughter and designated heir of Katrina, leader of her House, Lishaya of the Dasaroi, and soulbonded of Kieran (leader of his House). And if I was really bored and had like a lot of extra apostrophes hanging around, I could stick a few more generations behind Katrina.

I'm feeling much better now, thanks.

(I don't think there's a smooth way to fit that into the "linguistics" section of the primer, so you get it for free. May you have joy of it.)
