Hi Reef2000, welcome to the forums and indeed, to Dawn.
To make your group a noble house, you will need to designate that you are a group in Dawn, and describe yourselves as members of a noble house. That’s it. In order to be a little more functional and engage with the game on a few more levels, I reccomend that among your number are (1) Someone designated as the Earl of the House, the IC leader, and (2) Someone playing a yeoman, as house Seneschal. The former will get invited along to the Earls Council and be a good representative of the group, the latter can do all the trading for the group in a nationally appropriate way (because Nobles don’t deal with money, they delegate that sort of thing. Normally). I would also strongly suggest that your House has a name, a colour scheme, a symbol, and a place of origin on the map. This last can be as specific as 2 miles west of a known landmark in the northern area of a specific province, or as vague as “somewhere in Astolat”. You can backfill this in later.
There is no problem, and indeed several recent precedents for, new players starting as a noble House. You will be new to Empire LRP, your characters will be new to Anvil (RP question, why?). Your characters may not have met many other nations before, or even many lineaged, so asking questions is normal. I reccomend you read the Dawn brief carefully, introduce yourself to the Egregore(s) ASAP, and make some friends before time-in to ask any silly questions while “off-stage”.
House Myriad is fine, and has the benefit of being distinctive, different, and easy to pronounce. House names cover heraldic French, bad Latin, olde English, and more. Do you have a good story for the unusual name? What comes to mind here…
“And though her foes came but to her knee, they screamed in rage through needle teeth and came at her by the hundred and by the thousand. And Lady Alyson did hold the portal until her comrades relieved her, and found her covered in dark ichor, up to her waist in the bodies of the Swarm. And she was dubbed the Knight of the Myriad, and in memory of this deed of one against a thousand, when she started her own House, it was as House Myriad. And we will stand against our foes though they be beyond counting!”

I suggest you have a quick look through recent history, and watch out for the Winds of War in a couple of months… Dawn should (hopefully) feature heavily and produce much to discuss.
Other questions? Ask them here if you like, we’re a friendly bunch. But please use the search function, many a question has been asked before.
Dawn has, by the way, a facebook page as well:
