If someone gives a person a different name than the one he already has, it is punishable by lesser outlawry (three years exile) if the other one is angered by it. As such it is also the case if someone spreads around a nickname to degrade him, it is punishable by lesser outlawry, and it shall in both cases be decided by the verdict of twelve men.
Grágás (Grey Goose Laws), Iceland, 13th c.
