1000 thanks.  So it's a noun that means high-born? Could it be applied to a female?

This helps SO much!

Hi Andrew,

'tignu' is an inflected form of 'tiginn' "of noble birth". Depending
on the context, it could be strong neuter singular, or weak feminine
singular oblique (accusative, genitive or dative), or weak nominative,
accusative or genitive plural of any gender.
