The Name

The name, "Ansteora" (note, back then it only had one "R") was one of three that had been proposed. The others were Gilonade and Terebinthia. Ansteora comes from Anglo-Saxon, and means "One (or Only) Star." This name was proposed by Aurieliannae Rioghail.

The Motto

The Kingdom Motto is "Uniqus et Singularis" - Unique and Singular - a description taken from the Anglo-Saxon chronicles of Haley's Comet.
