Middle ILoI dated 2012-03-15

Greetings unto THL Kriemhilt von Ebersberg, Dragon Herald, Meister Konrad Mailander, Rouge Scarpe Herald, and the commenting members of the Midrealm College of Heralds; from Thegn Edward Aelredson, Interim Escutcheon Herald.

Herein please find submissions received in February 2012. Unless noted, clients will accept a holding name.

All comments are due to Rouge Scarpe and Dragon by April 25, 2012.

1: Cadwgan Faber -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.

A Simple Guide to Constructing 13th Century Welsh Names

Men's Names : [Cadwgan] Cadugan

Bynames Based on an Occupation : English-Smith 13th c Forms - Faber (L)


2: Cristyne Ullyn von Kiel -New Name & New Device

Purpure, in pale a triquettra inverted within and conjoined to an annulet Or and a rose argent barbed vert and seeded Or between flaunches argent each charged with a rose purpure barbed vert and seeded sable

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Language (German) most important.
Culture (15th Century) most important.

<Cristyne> - In the article, "15th Century German Women's Names" by Brian Scott (Talan Gwynek), (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/germ15f.html), it is noted that the woman's given name spelled <Cristyne> is cited one (1) time in "Arnsburger Personennamen".

<Ullyn> - In the article, "German Names from Nurnberg, 1497" by Sara L. Uckelman (Aryanhwy merch Catmael), (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/german/nurnberg1947.html), it is noted that the masculine given name spelled <Ull> is cited twenty-nine times in "Reichssteuerregister von 1497". In the article "Women's Surnames in 15th- and 16th-Century Germany" (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/german/womenssurnames.html), it is noted that in Nurnberg 1497, women's surnames were often the feminine form of the husband's or father's given name and/or surname, sometimes formed by adding <-yn>. Examples in the article demonstrate that a woman's name could consist of both possesive and locative names.

<von Kiel> - In "Academy of Saint Gabriel Report 3002" (http://www.s-gabriel.org/3002) it is noted that a locative surname could be formed using <von> followed by a locative name. In "The 1911 Classic Encyclopedia" (http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/Kiel), in the entry regarding 'Kiel', Germany, the name <Kiel> appears as early as the 10th century as <Kyl>. Spelled <Kiel>, it is mentioned as a city in the next century.

It is the consulting herald's opinion, based on documentation, that it is plausible for Ull, a 15th century German man from Nurnberg, to move to Kiel, marry, and his wife or daughter subsequently use surnames based on Ull's given name and location of marriage or her birth.

5: Layla al-Zarqa' -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2011, via the Middle

Argent, on a fess azure a weasel and a cat combattant passant argent

Name registered April 2011 via the Middle

Previous submission was returned on April 2011 LoAR for the following reason:

This device is returned for violating the following precedent:

In this submission the chevron inverted and the tree can only be interpreted as co-primary charges, as they are of approximately equal visual weight and neither occupies the center of the shield. This combination of ordinary with non-ordinary charge in a single charge group produces an unbalanced design. Without period evidence for such a design, it is not registerable. [Issobell nic Gilbert, April 2005, R-Caid]

This precedent was upheld as recently as November 2010. The current submission has the same problem: none of the charges occupies the center of the field, and they are all of equivalent visual weight.

Since the charges on the device are all co-primary charges, in the same group, this device is also returned for violating our ban on so-called "slot machine" armory. Section VIII.1.a of the Rules for Submissions says that "three or more types of charges should not be used in the same group.


6: Llewellyn ap Teyrnon -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1992, via the East

Submitter desires a feminine name.

<Malina> - "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames" by Talan Gwynek (Brian M. Scott), (http://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Mary) "Malina 1212 Malin; 1297 Lilleyman; 1303 Spack"

<an Eich Gil> - "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Descriptive Bynames: in Eich Gil", by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien), (http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/DescriptiveBynames/inEichGil.shtml) Middle Irish Gaelic, <an Eich Ghil> is the spelling in the data from dates 1014, 1023, 1036, 1118
