Interesting, - thanks Dasale.
Talking of "sound like" stuff in the game, of course there's also
Arl = Earl, Ser = Sir; Bann = Baron

Btw, I'd been wondering about the "Teyrn" title, so I looked it up, and apparently:
"Teyrn" is also an actual real world title, being the Welsh for "petty king," or "tyrant." ; or "sovereign", according to other sources.

Interesting also that they called the neighbouring country with French customs and citizens with French accents, "Orlais" , with a capital called "Val Royeaux"… XD

Ferelden does seem rather Medieval British with its Chantry and a similar structure in its aristocracy.
