Names, often, are related to places or regions like
Mahmud of Ghazni
Christopher of Bavaria
My questions are:
- Are such names always related to people from political backgrounds (Kings, Ministers, Feudal Lords etc.)?
- Against conventions for general names, is it correct to prefix such names with 'The'?
- Is it correct to simply write 'The' + First_Name and ignore the location, as in, 'The Mahmud' instead of 'The Mahmud of Ghazni'.
