Upon marriage a wife uses a modified version of their family name along with their husband’s name. The suffix -on, meaning ‘from’ or ‘out of’, is added to their natal House. So Kommene becomes Kommenon, Iereus Iereon, Damatrys Damatron, etc. Since wives are frequently married to establish political alliances, it’s important that their family ties still be apparent. Marrying a Kommene (even a defective one) indicates a move up in the world for House Iereus.

Loukas’s unmarried name and title is Arist Loukas Kommene and upon his marriage to Iereus it become Arist Loukas Kommenon Iereus. Upon formal introduction he be called Arist Kommenon Iereus, but thereafter Arist Iereus would be used.
