Not bickering, just having a lively debate is all.  Okay
Well even Aldorman Aldor would still indeed look weird. And anyways, Rohan isn't pre-viking England exactly, as Tolkien had modernized some old english words for Rohirric while others he did not, so we do not necessarily need to have the titles exactly the same as pre-Viking England either.

True, it was more of a pre-Norman England instead, but I still like the Pre-Danish titles!

I would definitely be fine with using Aldor or Aldorman if it also was not a personal name for the Rohirrim.

Well, it was not common? Or was it? I only know of one king by that name.

Well I'm not going to remove the name from the cultural file just for a title. As redit said, Earl would fit our purposes just fine.

I do have a problem with Eored being in there though, as that is the name of a company of riders in rohan, meaning roughly a Horseride with Eohere being a Horsearmy

I know this, but both also seem to fit with other naming conventions, as both -red and -here link up with other names (Wulfred and Wulfhere for instance). But I could take them out if they cause any localization problems, like Aldor Aldor would.

I read in the Tolkiendil forum (a french association) that the word Rohirric for culture and language of Rohirrim wasn't be used by Tolkien, who use the term "Rohanese" in "Rivers and Beacon Hills of Gondor" and in the "Nomenclature". Is it right?

Possibly. Rohirric is a term created by a Tolkien scholar.

I noticed that in the 0.3b alpha, there isn't Minas Morgul. (There's only Cirith Ungol) Are you going to add it?
