Aliena I saw listed in a book somewhere. And de Savigny is related to my mundane name. There are several places by that name in France, one of which had an abbey built there in about the twelfth century.

I’ve never been very exact about trying to do only things that my persona would have been able to do. If something looks interesting, I’ll have a go at it. Which is possibly a slightly different approach to some people. The kind of thing I’m wearing at the moment tends to be sixteenth-century Flemish, and the name I’ve got has no connection to that whatsoever.

Names are useful things to label people with. Some people get awfully attached to theirs. I’ve got to try and remember that I should respond when people call me Aliena.
