Format for KWHSS Article

For KWHSS, I am writing an article on evidence of Renaissance revival of names from Greek and Roman history and mythology.   This is the format I think I am going to use, identifying both the myth and examples of the names:


Orpheus was a legendary musician who attempted to rescue his beloved from the Underworld.  His story became a popular subject for medieval romances.  (

Orpheus Dunkynne; Male; Christening; 22 Mar 1601; Madron, Cornwall, England; Batch: P00169-1
Orfeo Amato; Male; Marriage; 18 Sep 1605; San Andres, Valladolid, Valladolid, Spain; Batch: M87100-9

What do folks this of this format?


  1. I think it's clear and has all the info needed.
    No Orphée? :)

    1. I am going to do a separate research run for French variants as the final drafting stage for the article.
