  • Combed through all the rest of the open JSTOR tabs I have regarding potential sources for Indian names, of which the following are the ones that I did more than ctrl + f over:
    • Ranabir Chakravarti, "Early Medieval Bengal and the Trade in Horses: A Note", Journal of the Economic and Social History of the Orient Vol. 42, No. 2, 1999.
    • John Stratton Hawley, "The Early Sūr Sāgar and the Growth of the Sūr Tradition", Journal of the American Oriental Society Vol. 99, No. 1 (1979).
    • G. V. Scammell, "After Da Gama: Europe and Asia since 1498", Modern Asian Studies Vol. 34, No. 3, Jul., 2000.
    • Barrie M. Morrison, "Sources, Methods and Concepts in Early Indian History", Pacific Affairs Vol. 41, No. 1, Spring, 1968.
    • T.H. Holditch, "Notes on Ancient and Mediæval Makran", The Geographical Journal, Vol. 7, No. 4, Apr., 1896.
    • Alain Desoulières, "Mughal Diplomacy in Gujarat (1533-1534) in Correia's 'Lendas da India'", Modern Asian Studies Vol. 22, No. 3, 1988: This one actually had a period feminine name!
    • A.M. Shah & R.G. Shroff, "The Vahīvancā Bāroṭs of Gujarat: A Caste of Genealogists and Mythographers", The Journal of American Folklore vol. 71
    • Rosalind O'Hanlon, "Kingdom, Household and Body History, Gender and Imperial Service under Akbar", Modern Asian Studies, Vol. 41, No. 5, Sep., 2007.
    • Michael H. Fisher, "Political Marriage Alliances at the Shi 'i Court of Awadh", Comparative Studies in Society and History, Vol. 25, No. 4, Oct., 1983.
    • George Birdwood, "The Rajputs in the History of Hindustan, Part 1", Journal of the Royal Society of Arts, Vol. 60: This had a reference to Udai Singh's sister (named!) which led me to the names of four of his wives/concubines, so now I've actually got a handful of 16th C Rajput feminine names!
    • Mary Shepherd Slusser, "On a Sixteenth-Century Pictorial Pilgrim's Guide from Nepal", Archives of Asian Art, Vol. 38, 1985, because how cool is that?


  • Worked on the PoV translation some more. Wow, it's messy...
  • Um, yeah, an article on 16th C Rajput women's names.



  • A bit of IEP work.




  • Sorted out travel to/from Yule.
