2. Adam fitz Gilbert's wife was Idonea Comyn, with whom he
had a grant of the lands of Blyth, Ingraston, and the Haugh
(Spittalhaugh) in Linton Parish, Peebles from her brother,
the earl of Buchan. The name Idonea is encountered with
rarity, but we have the name appear in the Graham family
with a daughter of Sir Henry de Graham 'the younger', in
the person of Idonea, wife of Adam de Swinburn .

The name Idonea is the Latin form of Idoine. I recommend you avoid
the Latin forms.

Each case has to be judged individually. On my website the name Idonea appears twelve times, a recent one is Roxana Idonea Grant-Suttie, born 1 November 1961, source BP 1967 page 2427. The name Idoine appears only eight times. My own name is Leonardus, which is Latin, but I have always been known as Leo. Officialdom in Australia is using all the time the full Latin version.
With best wishes
