Not satisfactory. I think of "Alfred the Great", "Dai Jones the
Bread", etc. A relative clause/phrase is part of the name. If
I use the name, I'm not claiming that Alfred was great, or that
Dai Jones is associated with the bread. Perhpas {la tumclaxu pou
la djan}, {la banli pou la alfred}? {la pou la alfred (geu) banli}?
