Middle ILoI dated 2012-06-01

Middle Kingdom ILoI dated 2012-06-01


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 Lady Hiordis Ragnarsdottir, Escutcheon Herald.


Herein please find submissions received from my assumption of the office in May 2012. Unless noted, clients will accept a holding name.


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

1: Akum-Shield, Shire of -New Branch Name & New Device

Argent a wolf rampant sable within a Laurel wreath vert and in chief three oak leaves vert.

Sound (Oaken Shield) most important.
Meaning (Oaken Shield) most important.

<Akum> [Watts] "Cambridge Dictionary of English Placenames" s.n. Aike has <Ach> 1086, <Ake> 1150, <Aike> 1305; place name that means 'oak tree'. There's also another place name spelled <Akum> or <Acum> in 1296 s.n. Acomb, which uses the plural 'oak trees'.

<Shield> pattern in English place-names of taking a place name and adding a surname after it, usually because a family by that name owned the place or had their prominent house there. The surname <Shield> appears in the parish records of Uffculme in the marriage of Simon Shield to Katheryn Baker (26 Nov 1593)(http://www.uk-genealogy.org.uk/cgi-bin/browse.cgi?action=ViewRec&DB=8&bookID=26&page=87&submit=Submi t)"

2: Altenberg, Shire of -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1997, via the Middle

Argent on a fess wavy azure an oak leaf in sinister sable.

Returned at Kingdom, June 2011 ILoAR.

Rouge Scarpe writes:

"Badge returned for design and administrative reasons.

The badge should be blazoned; "Argent, a fess wavy azure, overall an oak leaf bendwise sable." For a barry wavy field there should be three or more azure bars instead of the single fess. The submitter should be informed that if the field was changed to barry wavy it would conflict with Cynthia of Oakenwode (reg. 10/2003 via the East), "Bendy sinister Or and gules, an oak leaf bendwise sable." There is one CD for the field. No conflicts were found vs. "Argent, a fess wavy azure, overall an oak leaf bendwise sable."

The badge was depicted on a roundel drawn within the square on the form. This means it could be considered a submission of (Fieldless) On a plate, a fess wavy azure, overall an oak leaf bendwise sable. Precedent: We note that this was submitted on the standard square badge form, but on a roundel display within it. Technically, it might have been considered a submission of (Fieldless) On a pomme fimbriated two hares salient respectant argent, and returnable for that reason alone. On resubmission, please have the submitter use the entire square field of the badge form." [LoAR 11/2008, Karl Braden von Sobernheim, Artemisia-R] This is the design reason for the return. As stated in the precedent the submitter should use the entire square field of the badge form when preparing the resubmission."


3: Benjamin Blood -New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound (not indicated) most important.

<Benjamin> 3 occurances in "Late 16t C English Given Names" (http://heraldry.sca.org/laurel/names/eng16/eng16.html)

4: Bran Marius -New Household Name & New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2012, via the Middle

Maison de Marius

sable, a shield in the center with wolf heads on either side both looking away from the center, argent.

Sound (none specified) most important.
Meaning (House of Marius) most important.

Submitter's name included in this letter, already has a device attached to it.

This item was originally submitted as <House Marius> but after communication with the submitter, they requested a change to an all-French name like Maison de Marius.

<Marius> unmarked patronymic. [Dauzat] Marius, gentilice romain, illustré surtout par le vainqueur des Teutons et des Cimbres; n. d'un saint obscur et d'un évêque d'Avenches (Helvétie, ve s.). Exceptionnel au moyen âge, le n. de bapt. fut un peu plus en faveur à la Renaissance et surtout, à une époque plus récente, dans la région de Marseille. Peu de patronymes (Puy-de-Dôme, Midi). Forme adaptée mérid.

What I can make out is that may be of importance was "Exceptional in the Middle Ages" and "was a little more in favor with the Renaissance."

<Freeman> Reaney & Wilson. "William Freman 1196 FFNf; Osbert Friman 1240 Fees (Beds), 'freeman', 'free-born man', used also as a personal name."

Submitter writes: "My goal is to be as generic as I can be in regards to my name. Flashy and exotic names do not interest me. I am going for a generic European crusader style persona, 11th-13th C. Most likely of the England/France/Germany side of Europe"

Submitter writes: "I have chosen 12th Century Germany, city of Partenkirchen in the Holy Roman Emire, as my time and place. The first name I have chosen is Sabina, which at this time, was a Norman name. Sabina/Sabine did not become a common German name until the 15/16th centuries. The last name I have chosen is Chastelosen, a feminine version of Chastelose. This was a name occurring in 12th C. Germany. I have chosen this name due to my personal Norman/German ancestry.
