    The page is titled Ayairda's Cleansing Home but the regent is Ayairdan Vierklevven. Is this additional "n" caused by a linguistic rule (e.g. +n if the name is the headword of the subject's noun phrase, or equivalent) or is it a typo?

    It is as its written on p. 81 of HotGB.

    It could be a title, but there are also plenty of regents with names suspiciously similar to the place they hail from.

    The surname looks a bit Finnish/Rjurik to me but the first name is more Arab/Khinasi but I guess both could possibly be regarded as Vos. Neither look Brecht. I know nothing of this domain. I don't know much about Russianish morphology but considering that this domain name has been translated into English/Anuirean, I would expect that the English possessive form of the regent's name to be the same as the English form of the name in other syntactic roles. We change parts-of-speech rather than change the spelling, e.g. China's governement vs Chinese government. If the regent and the name in the domain are the same names (and the name doesn't relate to something/someone else) then they should match.

    Ayairda is a vos name for Laerme. This is stated in BRCS, IIRC.

    You are quite correct Gheal. I thought I had searched for that but obviously I hadn't. The names being slightly different now makes sense (even if still confusing).

    Except that Ken, when you started the BR wiki page on the the Cleansing Home, you made it part of Category:Temple:Avani? Which is it? Avani or Laerme?

    Laerme. Ayairda visually looks like Avani and throws me every time.

    Yeah, I know. That's the problem with their avatars. Every time you seem them you have to squint but you can't work out whether it's their radiant beauty or their beautiful radiation. Either way, they're hot!
